Asia Mediated Lecture Series: Speaking Truth to Power in the ra of Fake News & Propaganda

 The news media in Southeast Asia, like elsewhere in the world, are being challenged by the dissemination online, especially on social media platforms, of fake news and propaganda. This comes at a time when the news media are facing problems on various fronts, including collapsing revenue models, pressure from media owners, and more draconian restrictions on the right to report and publish. This talk will examine the prospects for truth-telling in polarized and propaganda-rich media environments in Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines.
