Lies, Fake Lies and Alternative Facts

In a world where fake news and alternative facts are normalised, we coin terms like “post truth”. Nicky Hager and Matt Kidd discuss the moral dimensions of lying without consequence, and the challenges for journalism where normal becomes a failure to check facts, to publish unconfirmed stories.

We might agree with political theorist Hannah Arendt who said that if everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe lies, but that no-one believes anything.
