#LOGANCIJ Video: Jimmy Wales on Fake News and How to Beat It

    Another #LOGANCIJ talk. 
    Is our news diet making us ill? As the mainstream print media retrenches and new kinds of partisan, “activist”, corporate and fact-free “alternative” media fill the vacuum, the media we consume is full of more hidden additives than ever. What can be done about it? Is it enough to check facts, or is the increasing overpopulation of factoids, and think tanks and activist groups fact-checking their enemies, part of the problem?
     
    Jimmy Wales founder of Wikipedia, and founder of crowd-funded news platform WikiTribune, came to the Centre for Investigative Journalism to think about how to fix our broken news industry. In conversation with James Harkin, Director for the CIJ.
