In 2018, the Journalism Honours class undertook a year-long media project called Fake News Friday (the name originated from our research mini-dissertations, for which each of us had a ‘fake news’ related theme). The management of this project consisted of running a YouTube news channel with relevant student news from the NWU Potchefstroom campus, social media sharing and various other multimedia projects.
