Thought contagion? Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Cardiff School of Journalism, Media & Culture

In one of the most resonant political speeches of the 20th century, Franklin Roosevelt told an anxious United States and a stricken world that “the only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” Jump to the present day and that fear – nameless, unreasoning, paralyzing – is still in the air and many blame the media for it. Is the charge justified? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, director of research development and environment, Cardiff School of Journalism, Media & Culture.
