Politics in the Park: Fake News


In this highly topical Politics in the Park session, our panel of media experts will discuss how the behaviour of our mainstream media can give shape to public opinion or potentially sway political favour and outcomes. Where should we stand on the idea that a balanced and ethical story might get in the way of a good headline and increased circulation or viewing numbers? Is there a middle ground? Margaret Simon chairs this discussion with journalists Adrian Tame and Michael Rowland.
