Joint event with The Media Society andThe Student Publication Association
When was the last time you saw someone share a news story you had doubts about?
Fake news has become one of the leading discussions of 2017 - but just how did we get to place where fantasy was so readily accepted as fact, and more importantly, what do we do to fix it?
Join us for an evening of debate with some of those at the forefront of the fight against it.
- James Ball is a special correspondent for BuzzFeed UK and has spoken extensively on fake news. His next book, 'Post-Truth: How Bullshit Conquered the World', is out in July. @jamesrbuk
- Alastair Reid is a digital journalist specialising in social media, UGC and investigating misinformation. Until recently he was managing editor at First Draft News. @ajreid
- Megan Lucero, from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. @Megan_Lucero
Chaired by Jonathan Hewett, Pathway Director, Interactive & Newspaper Journalism. @jonhew
