Not Another Fake Newscast: When is News Fake?
July 30, 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The phrase Fake News is on everyone’s lips… but when does News become fake? Is it a matter of perspective, or has some news always been false? Where is the line between patriotism, propaganda and outright misinformation?
If you want to hear two podcasters discuss all this and look in depth at where our fake news is coming from then join us as we host an evening with #NAFNC presenters Gerry & Paul McCann
About the Podcast:
Not Another Fake NewsCast is a Scottish based News & Politics podcast which tries to sift through the misreporting, fake news & sometimes outright lies presented to us all on a daily basis. By carrying out thorough research & looking at statistics we try to get to the truth at the heart of topics as diverse as Immigration, Middle Eastern politics, the War on Drugs and Big Banking corruption. We also try to do this in a fun & lighthearted way.
