New podcast episode with postdoc Johan Farkas

Our postdoc in the ‘Tell Me the Truth’ project, Johan Farkas, is guest on the latest episode of the Journalistica Methods podcast. This podcast focuses on journalism studies research and is presented by the Nordic open access journal Journalistica.

The episode centers on Farkas' research into discourse theory and its application for studying the concept of fake news. He explains that discourse analysis allows researchers to examine and critically engage with political aspects of the fake news debate, examining how different actors, including politicians and journalists, use the term to legitimize certain forms of politics and media.

The episode is published in connection with a new article by Johan Farkas in Journalistica.
