#jpod: Where does the truth lie in journalism and communications?

What is truth? Tricky as a philosophical question, even more so when discussing truth and objectivity in today’s  media. Speaking at an event organised by Editorial Intelligence, journalists, PR agencies, academics and bloggers discussed how online communications are affecting the idea of truth in the media; and how the speed with which information spreads via the web is challenging accuracy and objectivity amongst news organisations.

Debating the issues were:

  • Political bloggers Guido Fawkes and Iain Dale;
  • FT journalist Sue Matthias;
  • head of journalism at City University London George Brock;
  • BBC Panorama journalist John Ware;
  • Chief executive of Editorial Intelligence Julia Hobsbawn.
