Matt Rooney is a 34-year-old New Jersey attorney and the founder of SaveJersey.com, the state’s largest online conservative news source. A regular panelist for “Chasing News with Bill Spadea” on My9/Fox5 /Fox29 and frequent guest on regional television and radio programs, Matt was recently named one of “The 100 Most Powerful People in New Jersey Politics” for 2018 by New Jersey Globe.
In this interactive talk, Rooney will explore the controversial “fake news” phenomenon from the perspective of a social media commentator. Rooney’s analysis will include an in-depth look at the establishment media’s under-discussed role in bringing about the demise of its own credibility, the corresponding ascent of new media sources (like Save Jersey), and the rise of fake news amid the conflict.
