Fake news, post-truth and all that jazz

Author and journalist James Ball joins us this week for a discussion of his books Bluffocracy and Post-truth. We cover plenty of ground including a look at how the business model of journalism is changing the information economy, why algorithms are never agnostic, how fact-checking might not be the solution to polarised politics and perhaps most importantly, how Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage might just be an inspiration to us all.
