Slate Publishes Article by Socolow on Myth of ‘War of the Worlds’ Panic

Michael Socolow, an associate professor in the Communication and Journalism Department at the University of Maine, co-wrote an article published by Slate about the overblown reports of mass hysteria following Orson Welles’ 1938 radio broadcast of “War of the Worlds.” Oct. 30 marks the 75th anniversary of the broadcast. Socolow wrote the article with Jeff Pooley, an associate professor of media and communication at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa. The Bangor Daily News also carried the Slate article.
