Media and Power in post-truth America by Pablo Pardo, US Bureau Chief of El Mundo.

Journalism is crumbling under the “free for all” instituted by the internet. Politicians and companies can communicate directly to their audiences without intermediaries. What was initially seen as a tool for democracy and transparency has turned out to be a golden era of propaganda as shown by the United States under Donald Trump.

Date: Friday 14 December 2018.

Venue: Room 009, Faculty of Law.
