Fake news

The establishment and the media have started using ‘fake news’ as a catch-all phrase about stories which don’t fit their agenda. In terms of trust, the mainstream media today is at an all-time low. Apparently, truth is now subjective.

On this show, from Merthyr Rising festival in Wales, we ask if the term ‘fake news’ is here to stay and why it has made such a big splash during these economically unstable times?

Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by activist and writer Lindsey German, media analyst Dr. Mike Berry, and former UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray.
