Community Journalism: Filling the Gaps? – Talk & Discussion.

June 17, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Mary and Charles Lamb’s work often lead to insightful observations and commentaries about 19th century life in London. And perhaps today it is shaped by a more visual world, with social media added into the mix. But are these filling the gaps in news stories? And are we getting the full picture of news today?
Tom Sanderson, from the Centre for Investigative Journalism, will deliver a general talk about how his project supports investigative journalism and will discuss if community journalism could play a role in filling the gaps in local news – with comments on how news deserts and monopoly ownership has had an impact on the landscape of journalism today.
