Hated in the Nation

Let's dive into Black Mirror Season 3, where the show moved from Channel 4 to Netflix.

Reddit was quick to pick up on how the images of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sitting in Congressional Hearings, thanks to the Cambridge Analytica investigation, echoed scenes of DCI Karin Parke (Kelly McDonald) giving evidence to a Parliamentary committee in this episode.

Mirror Tech's (@MirrorTech) Future File podcast team, Jeff Parsons (@jparsons989) and Shivali Best (@shivalibest), join us to talk about the links between the Facebook hearings and the mining of data in Hated in the Nation - and what all of that means for us.

Fleet Street Fox (@fleetstreetfox) pops in to talk about appearing on Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe, and how important social media is for journalists today, including the likes of Jo Powers.

Mirror Online Showbiz Journalist Vicki Newman (@Vicki_Mirror) helps analyse this feature-length episode.
