Behind-the-scenes information

Chad Stern was a member of the Sam Houston Institute of Technology in 2015.

He was required, as part of a study by the institute as to whether the public were easily fooled by bogus news stories and made-up research from fictional institutions, to show 5200 people of all age groups an issue of USA Today full of fictional news articles and studies.

The findings were reported in the story Public more gullible than ever by Travis Pietsch on the front cover of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Public more gullible than ever was in fact a meta article notifying uninformed readers of the fictional nature of the special "front page wrap" for the real life October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today.
