Sunday 11am, Discovery Lounge

Speakers: Narelda Jacobs, Kevin Nguyen, Liam Phillips, Jessica Warriner

Facilitator: Flip Prior

We live in an age where the terms ‘fake news’, ‘post truth’ and ‘alternative facts’ are accepted vernacular. Social media has created a world of instant gratification and short grabs, which muddy the complexity and nuance that traditionally underlay politics and societal issues. Are we destined for a world of flat-earthers and anti-vaxxers dominating our national news channels?

A panel of journalists discuss whether this is the end of critical thinking or if we can claw our way back.
