Abstract

Recent pushes to embrace problems and solutions related to working and teaching in an age of “post-truth” reveal problematic, long-time journalistic cultures and approaches of journalism that educators are challenged to address. This essay provides a critical voice to this special issue on education in “post-truth” to interpret current themes of threats to journalism discussed across journalistic communities. This perspective takes into account forces of neoliberalism and hegemonic ideologies within journalism education that, if addressed, could turn trials of “post-truth” into a redevelopment of journalism education for the common good.
