Great Analysis: 'In the wake of the success of various ‘populist’ political campaigns such as Brexit and Trump, there has been a moral panic amongst mainstream news media. A rise in ‘Fake News’, propaganda and hyper-partisan publishing online has compounded the sense of a disruption of political journalism. This has fed into concerns about effects of a range of structural shifts in mediated deliberation, especially online. The notion that we are in a ‘post-truth’ society has led to general questions about what we mean by truth and trust and, in particular, their relationship to technology.' This is the text by Professor Charlie Beckett, Director of the LSE’s Truth, Trust and Technology Commission at the University of Adelaide’s News Reporting And Emotions conference.'
