National Geographic, TIME Cite Socolow’s Research

Michael Socolow, an associate professor in the Communication and Journalism Department at the University of Maine, was interviewed by National Geographic for the article “75 years since ‘War of the Worlds’ broadcast, hoaxes live on.” Socolow’s recent Slate article on the overblown reports of panic the 1938 radio program was also cited in the TIME article “The real legacy of Orson Welles’ ‘War of the Worlds’ broadcast.” Socolow’s research determined the reported mass hysteria after the broadcast was created by newspapers in an attempt to discredit radio and win over advertisers.
