Fake news inquiry

Filed under: News, ethical space editors blog, Headlines, journalism, ethics training — news_editor @ 1:01 pm

In January 2017, parliament’s culture, media and sport committee set up an inquiry to investigate ‘the growing phenomenon of widespread dissemination, through social media and the internet, and acceptance as fact of stories of uncertain provenance or accuracy’. It followed the public outcry over deception in political campaigning during the UK’s EU Referendum and the USA’s presidential election in 2016.
A detailed analysis of the submissions to the inquiry by Vian Bakir and Andrew McStay, of Bangor University, can be accessed at
