Channel 4 – The importance of Journalism in an era of Fake News with Jon Snow

The ‘mainstream media’  has never been more under attack. In this discussion Channel 4 Commissioning Editor Siobhan Sinnerton will chair a Q&A with Dorothy Byrne, Head of News and Current Affairs, and presenter Jon Snow to ask how they are responding to this new environment. In a frank and lively debate we will discuss how to tell fake news from real facts, why trusted sources matter more than ever, and ask whether the news media is guilty of being out of touch with the lives of ordinary people.
