  • Your 2020 essentials – trust and truth

    Our hectic, 24-hour lifestyles have inevitably led to an increase in the number of stories required to keep up with our constantly ‘switched on’ demands, and unfortunately fewer people to produce those stories. This has unsurprisingly resulted in ‘less than accurate’ content being shared across different platforms. Add ‘fake news’ to the mix, and a multitude of channels to communicate across, and there was always going to be a consequence: a complete lack of trust and the rise of ‘mis and disinformation’.
