FIGHTING FAKE NEWS

Fake news is a scourge spread with lightning speed thanks to social media.

Read Aidan’s 7 tips for fighting fake news.

HOW TO WORK WITH TV JOURNALISTS

TV journalists need experts that are available at short notice, know what they are talking about and can express themselves clearly and concisely. These were some of the tips from Deutsche Welle’s Catherine Martens at our latest News and Booze event for NGO communicators that Clear Europe hosts along with Julian Ravenscroft and Conscience Consulting.

You can read more of Catherine’s tips on how to work better with TV journalists here.
