Communicating politics in the age of populism & fake news

Politics
The rise of populists and the mixing of fact and fiction through fake news are not only changing the political process in a certain country but also societies themselves. What is fake news? Fake news, messages that intentionally spread false content to mislead others, is not a new phenomenon. The same applies to populism, which is characterized by the appeal to “common sense”, the dichotomy between the “pure people” and the “corrupt elite”, anti-elitism, hostility to institutions, moralization, polarization and personalization of politics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXt6O5cxjw The challenges of populism and fake news for policy communication Political problems both internally and externally are becoming more complex.

Politician
Former US President Barack Obama is doing what every golfer dreams of, playing a round on the Old Course in St. Andrews. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ie9BH8WP8LI Every leader has barely time to play. But Presidents need some time for themselves too. During Barack Obama's term, there's no denying that despite many issues he has to face, he still finds time to play his favorite sport, golf. But now he doesn't have to wait for a spare time to play - he has all the freedom to play golf on the old course of St. Andrews. The end of a presidency, passing the baton on, also has advantages - for example, that you no longer have to grapple with critics who constantly argue that you spend too much time on your favorite hobby.

Donald Trump, Dogless White House

Entertainment, News, Politician
While many past U.S. Presidents have been noted to have had dogs with them in the white house, this time it's not the case. President Donald Trump must have reasons why the White House is dogless until this time. Who knows he might have dog allergies? We can't prove that though until the President takes a dog allergy testing (https://jackspets.com/dog-allergy-testing). I can't imagine the big White House not having a dog. I don't recall who said it first, yet it's obvious that many concur with this view, "Never trust anyone who doesn't like dogs." Pet lovers believe that a person's attitude toward a dog shows something significant to his personality. In times of political campaigns, the voting public determines who has the qualities, knowledge, and character of a president. A dog psyc...
