Newspapers and traditional journalism are one of the many industries ‘disrupted’ by the internet.  Many people piece together their view of the world from snippets from social media and personalise their ‘feeds’ to ensure their existing opinions are always reinforced rather than challenged.

‘Fake news’ and state sponsored disinformation is further eroding the common culture and acceptance of objective reality which political debate, and democracy itself, depend upon.

Experts are divided on whether these problems will self correct or continue to deteriorate.  Read these stories on Open Forum for more insight into these and related themes as we focus on the future of media.
