DONALD TRUMP VERSUS CNN, AND OTHER CHALLENGES IN GLOBAL MEDIA

In his war against the mainstream media, rubbishing their reporting on him, Donald Trump has singled out CNN for particular vitriol. He said they broadcast “fake news” adding “they were enemies of the people”.

In response, CNN’s President responded “that attacks on the media are dangerous, unprecedented and shocking. It’s an attempt to de-legitimatize…the American system…”.

Rarely in history has a Head of State been at war against the mainstream media, denying the facts, their integrity, and seeking to sideline them.

On the night, Giorgio Stock will talk about how CNN has been fighting its corner, alongside describing many of the hidden challenges a media company now faces.

The discussion and Q&A will be at Gresham College in Holborn, and followed by a reception. Please arrive at 6.45 for registration for a 7pm start. As part of a spring promotion, prices for attendance have been significantly cut.
