The 2018 Digital News Report by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism reveals that 74% of news consumption in the UK is online. The same report shows that public trust in news is low: only 42% of a sample of the British public trust news overall.
So can we believe the media? What is the role of journalism in the digital age? And does regulation help or hinder the free press?
Speakers include Jonathan Heawood, Chief Executive Officer of IMPRESS, the recognised press regulator in the UK; Peter Feeney, Ireland's Press Ombudsman; and a panel of journalists, broadcasters, journalism trainers and students
The panel will also feature renowned journalists like Tara Mills, broadcaster and journalist at BBC Northern Ireland; Brian Pelan, Editor of VIEWDigital; and Meave Connolly, Deputy Digital Editor at Irish News.
The event is open to the public and is free to attend.
