This Fake Newsstand Pop-Up in Bryant Park Sells Only Fake-News Magazines and Newspapers

In Bryant Park today, the Columbia Journalism Review filled a very real newsstand with newspapers and magazines which were filled with actual fake news articles and posts seen across the web in recent months.

The Columbia Journalism Review invites you to stare into the abyss with a trip to its fake news stand, on display in Bryant Park until 2 p.m. today. Why? Because in one tidy visual assault, you will experience all the erroneous stories, the conspiracy theories, the frankly dangerous pieces of propaganda that have snaked their way into our mainstream news cycle these past few years, and appreciate the pernicious nature of the problem.

Check out the accompanying article to learn more about the pop-up.
