Alexis Conran is back with his latest podcast.
This week we’re looking at fake news, alternative facts and the social responsibilities we have when we share news. How do we know what’s real? How can we check?
Joining us on the show is Will Moy, director of Full Fact, a charity that fact checks everything from politicians’ claims to journalists. We’ll also hear from Reuters’ EMEA regional editor Simon Robinson on how news agencies verify their news in a world where speed is important.
And finally we talk to Professor Richard Wiseman from the University of Hertfordshire about the appeal of fake and alternative news.
