Misinformation, media and trust
5 May 2020
About this video
In times of crisis, people turn to the media for information that they can trust. What responsibilities do old and new media organisations have to address the problem of “junk news” spreading rapidly? How can businesses earn trust in a climate of confusion, uncertainty and misinformation?
In this broadcast of Said Business School’s “Leading in Extraordinary Times” series, Professor Andrew Stephen led a discussion with Professor Phil Howard, Director of the Oxford Internet Institute and Oxford Saïd Fellows Dr Alex Connock and Rachel Botsman.
