Professor Zizi Papacharissi on Worldview Discussing Her New Book and Facebook Testimony

Zizi Papacharissi, UIC professor and head of communication and professor of political science, joined WBEZ’s “Worldview” program yesterday to discuss her new co-edited book, “Trump and the Media,” and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional testimony. Papacharissi says regulation optimally combines opt in/out policies with education so that public makes informed decisions, across all platforms. She notes the problem is larger than Facebook, but it is important to use this opportunity for change.
