CFP: Fake News and its Narratives (7/01/06; collection)

Submissions are invited for a proposed collection theorizing fabricated news and
its narratives.

In the past twenty-five years, American journalism has been scandalized by a
series of sensational cases of journalistic fraud. Janet Cooke, Stephen Glass,
and Jayson Blair are only the most notorious examples of reporters who have
been caught inventing characters, making up quotations, plagiarizing details,
and, in the most outrageous cases, faking entire stories.
