El Chapo, Sean Penn, Roy Moore, Oh my! Citizen journalism is great until it runs amok and everyone starts screaming “fake news!” and in this episode we break down the evolution of today’s media environment to understand where we are and how we got here, and we found the perfect person to discuss that with, One America News Network’s Stephanie Hamill!
