The course titled ‘Media Polarization and Public Policy Impacts’ will include several guest speakers throughout its 10 weeks, including the President’s son. Tulane University confirmed the course along with a list of speakers. They are as follows:
- Hunter Biden
- Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator under President Donald Trump
- Juan Williams, political analyst for Fox News Channel
- Susan Glasser, columnist for The New Yorker
- Margaret Sullivan, Washington Post columnist; Kylie Atwood, national security correspondent for CNN
- Margaret Brennan, Face the Nation moderator
- Bret Stephens, New York Times columnist
- Dr. Michael Fauntroy, a professor in the Political Science Department at Howard University.
The course description, according to a syllabus obtained by DailyMail.com, says: “America’s rapidly advancing partisan divide is fueled substantially by the growing political polarization increasingly evident in our news media.” The course will “explore the current state of the media landscape in the United States and how media polarization, fake news, and the economics of the news business impact public policymaking in Washington, D.C,” it continues. The term “fake news” was coined by Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign for President.
