20 years on would The Sun be able to write their infamous Hillsborough headline? In an era of Twitter, Facebook, instant digital photos and blogs is there a future for the published media in a role reporting daily news? Post Leverson are we on the verge of observing the extinction of the tabloid and broadsheet? In an era of broadband and tablet are we entering a new age of news? What does all this mean for democracy and who can we trust to tell us the truth about tomorrow's news?
This discussion group is being led by WEA volunteer Nev Bann who prior to retirement taught sociology in environments ranging from prison to community colleges, has extensive experience of union activity, served as a city councilor and stood for parliament.
The event is held at the WEA offices at the Cotton Exchange in Liverpool,
