Follow Up: Peter Klein on the Influence of Facebook

As a follow-up to the UBC Streeters video about online news sources, we spoke with UBC Professor Peter Klein for his take on using Facebook as a news source. He is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, writer, and documentary film maker, whose work has appeared on 60 Minutes, The New York Times, and in The Globe and Mail. This segment is a preview from a larger interview.

If you’re like many of the students in our Streeters video about online news sources, then you might also be getting your news primarily from Facebook. After hearing Professor Klein’s comparison of Facebook to traditional newspapers, will you act differently?
