University of Illinois offering Trumpaganda course

Quad at the U of I
My alma mater, which gets none of my money except by way of taxes, continues its leftward lurch.

From One Illinois:
Students at the state’s flagship public university are going to get a chance to study how President Trump uses the media for propaganda purposes.

Trumpaganda: The War on Facts, Press and Democracy is an advanced eight-week Journalism 460 course launching Oct. 22 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Taught by Associate Professor Mira Sotirovic, the weekly class “examines the Trump administration’s disinformation campaign, its ‘running war’ with the mainstream news media, and their implications for American democracy and a free press,” according to the course description.
Didn't Barack Obama have a war with Fox News? Didn't his Justice Department spy on a Fox News reporter, James Rosen?

Yes. And yes.

They really should use James O'Keefe's book American Pravda to provide balance, to show how the progressives are attempting to control what the public gets to know.
