Tulane University announced that President Biden's troubled son will help teach students as a guest lecturer in a class that covers 'fake news' later this year.
As Fox News reports, "Media Polarization and Public Policy Impacts" is a course focusing on "the current state of the media landscape in the United States and how media polarization, fake news and the economics of the new business impact public policymaking in Washington DC."
According to The Daily Wire, Biden is one of many guest speakers lined to contribute to the course during the Fall 2021 semester. Out of the seven listed, only one is from a conservative-leaning news outlet.
The inclusion of Hunter Biden is puzzling, since he is not a member of the media in any capacity. Tulane University has not made it clear exactly why he was chosen. Perhaps the justification is that recent stories related to the President's son have been presented quite differently by different media outlets.
It was reported last year that Biden had been raking in cash working for a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, despite having almost no relevant qualifications. This lead to allegations of corruption; some thought Hunter was using his last name to get the job.
The ensuing Hunter Biden Laptop Story is a perfect example of media polarization; right-wing news outlets pressed for more information, while their left-wing counterparts tried to sweep it under the rug and dismiss the whole thing as "fake news," even claiming it was Russian disinformation.
Given Hunter Biden's notoriety as of late, the Tulane University course will likely be popular among students.
