Jeff Cohen, director and associate professor, Department of Journalism
Cohen was interviewed by the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer about whether “seeing is believing” when it comes to what we find on the Internet and on television news. Cohen said the media need to be more accountable, but that ultimately it is up to the reader and viewer to bring a healthy dose of skepticism to what they are seeing and hearing. “We should be skeptical about news and viral e-mail hoaxes and messages. We’re bombarded and we have to raise our level of skepticism.” You can see the interview here.
