Brace for a tsunami of disinformation

From Nine To Noon, 11:45 am on 12 February 2019

With elections on every continent, media commentator Gavin Ellis is warning there will be a tsunami of disinformation this year. Also two legal cases with implications: Australia is testing media company responsibility for Facebook posts attached to their stories, and a UK law firm has been granted a gagging writ to prevent a former employee disclosing to media confidential in-house settlements relating to "women in the workplace". Gavin Ellis is a media commentator and former editor of the New Zealand Herald. He can be contacted on gavin.ellis@xtra.co.nz
