#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.

Scott Trust chair calls for bylined leader articles

Dame Liz Forgan, chair of the Scott Trust – the body that owns Guardian Media Group – believes that newspaper leader columns should be bylined.

“I have always thought leaders should be signed,” Forgan, a former leader writer herself, said in a video interview with Editorial Intelligence. “I think that it is a very curious convention that leaders are unsigned. If they were all written by the editor that would be understandable. But they’re not: they’re written by a group of people who are professional leader writers, usually.”

She nearly persuaded the Independent’s founding editor Andreas Whittam Smith to break the trend with his new paper, she said: “I nearly won the argument but he chickened out in the end.”
