Trust, impartiality and objectivity in journalism are facing new challenges every day. In this new event at 6.30pm on Tuesday July 3rd we look at whether these values can survive and be maintained in the digital age.
The core principles of serious, public interest journalism are under pressure and even attack in the new digital environment. The democratisation of mass digital and social media, user generated content and the twenty four hour news culture, are having a big impact on the expectations of ethics and values in journalism.
In this panel discussion, we’ll ask if we can “Maintain Trust, Ethics and Values in the Digital Age?”
