Dan Thompson Runs RRU News Editorial Meeting in St John’s Shopping Centre
Dan Thompson's public workshop examines the daily headlines, picks apart front page stories and touches on the topic of "Fake News".
13th Apr 18
* Who makes the news?
* Where do stories come from?
* And what news can you really trust?
These were the questions Dan Thompson was asking during his residency with RRU on Friday 13 April.
Dan (who’s written for local and national newspapers) invited people to join him for his RRU News Editorial meeting – looking at the day’s papers from the perspective of a news room, unpicking the stories and separating fact from fiction, PR stunt from real story.
Through the day, Dan and the public used their analysis of the day’s media to draft a set of New Rules For Media – a manifesto for a fairer and more honest press.
