Hunter Biden is helping teach a class on fake news at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana this fall.

The course titled ‘Media Polarization and Public Policy Impacts’ will include several guest speakers throughout its 10 weeks, including the president’s son.

The course description, according to a copy of the syllabus obtained by DailyMail.com, says: ‘America’s rapidly advancing partisan divide is fueled substantially by the growing political polarization increasingly evident in our news media.’

‘This course will explore the current state of the media landscape in the United States and how media polarization, fake news, and the economics of the news business impact public policymaking in Washington, D.C,’ it continues.

Hunter, 51, is a Yale-educated lawyer and has never, in any capacities, worked as a journalist, reporter or in the media world.

‘Hunter Biden has no background in media,’ conservative filmmaker Phelim McAleer said. ‘He has never worked for a newspaper or a media outlet.’

‘Hunter Biden lecturing a class on fake news is like Harvey Weinstein teaching a course to prevent sexual harassment. It shouldn’t be happening. Period.’ the ‘My Son Hunter’ producer continued.

Tulane University confirmed the course in a statement to DailyMail.com and confirmed the list of speaker, including: 

  • Hunter Biden
  • Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator under President Donald Trump
  • Juan Williams, political analyst for Fox News Channel
  • Susan Glasser, columnist for The New Yorker
  • Margaret Sullivan, Washington Post columnist; Kylie Atwood, national security correspondent for CNN
  • Margaret Brennan, Face the Nation moderator
  • Bret Stephens, New York Times columnist
  • Dr. Michael Fauntroy, a professor in the Political Science Department at Howard University.

Donald Trump coined the term ‘fake news’ during his 2016 campaign for president where he insisted liberal-leaning media outlets were paining him in a false light and reporting fake stories on him – specifically regarding Russian collusion.

The course is specifically targeted ‘those interested in media relations and policy.’

This isn’t the first time the president’s son has ventured into areas that aren’t his specialty.

In February 2020, Hunter opened up about his passion for art in an interview with the Times.

In December last year, it emerged that while Hunter has not professional background as an artist, he signed a deal for a solo art exhibit at Manhattan’s upscale Georges Berges Gallery in SoHo for sometime later this year.

Most recently, Hunter has worked as a lawyer and investment advisor on a range of foreign deals, which have drawn scrutiny from the Justice Department.

Hunter said creating art was ‘literally keeping me sane’ following struggles with crack addiction, and in the midst of politically charged scrutiny over his foreign dealings.
