History has a profound impact on society as we learn from the past.  But, we now find ourselves in an age where the very notion of “fact” has been called into question. President Trump often refers to legitimate news sources as fake news, while his team puts forward different points of view by teaming them ‘alternative facts’. The push and pull from the news media to the White House to elected officials to us, as citizens, has created some primordial soup of misunderstanding.  On this episode of Media Inside Out, host Sherri Hope Culver speaks with Jason Steinhauer, a public historian and the director of Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest, about the different ways to explore history communication.
