Description

Full Fact presents: not the fake news

What we believe about the world affects the decisions we make every day, whether we are citizens or presidents. Bad information means bad decisions, and it corrodes trust. Join us and our special guests on the 27th of March at Newspeak House in London to discuss fake news and the misinformation ecosystem, and how best to respond.

Bill Thompson, Journalist and technology commentator


The Event

Full Fact is the UK's leading factchecking charity, and has been at the forefront of automated factchecking. We've been to a lot of events about fake news recently, but none quite provided the opportunity for people to hear directly from the key players. So we organised this. We hope you enjoy the evening.

The event will be taking place at Newspeak House, 133 Bethnal Green Road.

The event will be live streamed. You can follow the Full Fact twitter account on the night for the live feed.

Tickets are free. However, Full Fact is a charity, so if you would like to donate we would be very grateful.

Tickets will be released in batches:

First batch released on Weds March 15th at noon
Second batch released on Weds March 22nd at noon

The hashtag for the night is #FactCheckIt to join up with all the events happening for international factchecking day on April 2nd.
