Book now: 'It was the readers wot won it' debate
14 July 2017
The Society of Editors and London Press Club have come together to stage a debate later this month on the role of journalism and social media in influencing voters.
In a world of Trump tweets, Jeremy Corbyn’s youthquake and a shock General Election result, the event will look at whether print journalists or social media is better plugged into voters intentions.
To be held on Wednesday 26 July in London, the panel will include John Rentoul, Political columnist at The Independent and Simon Johnson, Reuters Regional Editor for Europe/Middle East/Africa. The debate will be chaired by Andrew Rawnsley, political columnist for The Observer.
The debate will start at 6 for 6.30 and will be held at the Reuters Building, 30 South Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London, E14-5EP. The results of a specially commissioned YouGov poll for the debate on “How today’s voters get their political news” will be revealed on the night.
