About This Blog

Cartoon by Mike Marland for marlandcartoons.com

In this blog, I will tackle different politicians and their claims of “Fake News”. This is to determine whether or not politicians are using “Fake News” as a way to remove themselves from different stories that may negatively hurt their careers.

I am a sophomore journalism student at West Virginia University with an interest in politics. I also write for Her Campus at West Virginia University about a range of topics. I also wrote a couple articles for the Daily Athenaeum, a student run newspaper. On a more personal note, I love reading, swimming and face masks.

You can find more articles that I’ve written at
