Neill Fitzpatrick


Neill Fitzpatrick spent much of his career as a journalist with CBC News and Global News, before becoming a prof at MacEwan. His research focuses on media manipulation and "fake news" in the post-truth/Trump era. As an assistant professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications, Neill designs and teaches courses in journalism, media relations and digital communications. While he recognizes there's never been a more challenging time for journalism, Neill also believes there's never been more opportunity for journalists to cut through the noise and share the facts with news consumers.
