From Bombs to Brexit

A message from Gerry Foley:

Talk 4: From Brexit to Berwick

Hello,

Here is some material you may like to look at ahead of my talk this Saturday 30th.

As well as talking about the Fake News phenomenon, I will also look at the the questions surrounding future funding models for the BBC and the apparent decline in public confidence in the BBC’s impartiality when it comes to reporting the big news stories.

1. Patterns of news consumption in the UK

2. Robert Peston gives his analysis on impartial reporting

3. American academic study on the prevalence, or otherwise, of fake news on social media platforms

4.…it’s not just Fox News who seem to have lost their sense of balance!

See you Saturday!

Gerry
