I AM FAKE NEWS

How a couple of small town stoners ruined America

Tim Keck, founder of The Onion and publisher of The Stranger, talks about fake news in the age of the Facebook algorithm. He will discuss topics stoners love most: the Spanish-American War, the importance of independent journalism in a liberal democracy, and the thrill of fucking shit up.

 

ABOUT GOODSHIP HIGHER EDUCATION

A heady lecture series under heady influence

In partnership with the Stranger and the Cloud Room, Goodship Higher Education presents intimate conversations with some of our regions most brilliant minds, covering topics from space travel to re-animation to modernist cuisine. Our goal is to present some of the most innovative, mind-bending, revolutionary and extraordinary ideas happening in art, technology, science and philosophy. And we encourage both the audience and speakers to "pre-board on the Goodship." It allows us to look at the world through a different lens, and we think that it is a fun and enlightening experiment to partner heightened states with big ideas.
