Professor Musgrave is co-author of a column in The Washington Post

Paul Musgrave, political science, is co-author of a column in The Washington Post that talks about how popular culture seen in television shows and movies can affect the perceptions of the public and influence how they view the world and the political system. The downside of this, the authors argue, is that false narratives and inaccurate facts can come to be believed by the public and that can actually have a serious impact on policy and political decisions.
