How do we sort media’s trusted wheat from the fake news chaff? Providing parallels with the Yellow Press era of a century ago, Hermanus resident Alec will share advice on how you can avoid becoming a ‘useful idiot’ serving the agendas of well-funded vested interests.
Alec has been immersed in digital media since 1996, first through his online publishing pioneer, Moneyweb, followed by the launch of BizNews in 2013. He has enjoyed a front-row seat as the news environment transformed from a trusted source of information into today’s ‘anything goes’ chaos.
