Historiography Of The Fake and Funny

On this episode of A Bit of Culture, we go over an eclectic combination of topics on living in the social media age - the documentation of contemporary events, what’s appropriate in comedy, and the importance of fact checking. Uma questions the methods would one be able to tangibly document the events of the social media age where media can be erased in the blink of an eye. In regards to political correctness and politics, Kam puts forth the question to our resident comedian, Jason Leong on “what’s funny?”.  Then, a debut appearance from comedian Dr. Jason Leong as he discusses the influence of the fake news phenomenon in the social media landscape in Malaysia.
