TV News: fair, balanced and impartial?

Goldsmiths Curzon, 1pm-5.30pm, Friday 5 May

In an era of massive political uncertainty, the role of television news - still the most popular news source for UK audiences - is absolutely central. This seminar offers academics, students and news professionals an opportunity to exchange views and research and to open up a debate on issues of impartiality, independence and interests. Academics will present research on TV news coverage of issues including:

  • the EU and Scottish referenda

  • the 2015 general election

  • Austerity and economics

  • Jeremy Corbyn's leadership election

  • Press regulation debates

Speakers include: Katy Searle (BBC), Tom Giles (ITV), Jane Martinson (Guardian), Paul Mason (TBC), Justin Lewis (Cardiff), James Stanyer (Loughborough), Emily Harmer (Liverpool), Justin Schlosberg (Birkbeck), Steve Barnett (Westminster), Mike Berry (Cardiff), Marina Dekavalla (Stirling), Ivor Gaber (Sussex), Jake Lynch (Sydney).
