Discussion "Journalist in the Lie Lie Land" at festival LAMPA

The post-truth era is upon us or, as the Oxford Dictionary puts it, “circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief". But this new fact-resistant reality does not relieve journalists of their responsibilities and they must ensure that members of the public make informed decisions. To discuss the new challenges to quality journalism, the BCME, in collaboration with the news agency LETA holds a public discussion at the annual LAMPA Conversation Festival. The discussion will feature panellists - leading minds in journalism - from influential media outlets in Norway, the US , Greece and Latvia.

The event is supported by EAA and Norway Grants.
