Farabaugh Discusses Misinformation by Talk Radio Commentators

Pat Farabaugh, an assistant professor in the IUP Journalism Department, recently wrote a guest editorial for the Johnstown 
Tribune-Democrat newspaper on the importance of talk radio commentators avoiding the dissemination of misinformation on their broadcasts.

Farabaugh’s editorial, titled “Misinformation Detrimental to Marketplace of Ideas,” was published in the January 2, 2011, edition of the newspaper. Farabaugh is an occassional guest columnist for the Tribune-Democrat.

A radio historian, Farabaugh recently published a book titled Carl McIntire’s Crusade Against the Fairness Doctrine. The book explores the career of McIntire, a longtime radio commentator, and his clashes with the Federal Communications Commission over its former fairness rules for broadcasters.
