Is democracy being subverted by dark money and big data? With the power of digital profiling and hidden offshore funds, are election rules being flouted and consensus automated? How do journalists investigate these new threats of informational warfare and fight the rise of weaponised fake news?
All these questions and more to be answered by a panel of experts in a rapid fire Q&A:
- Carole Cadwalldr, Observer journalist investigating Cambridge Analytica.
- Mary Fitzgerald, editor of Open Democracy investigating the DUP election spend.
- James Patrick, Byline journalist and author of Alternative War.
- Peter York, author and marketing expert.
