A Public Value Lecture about the importance of independent public media; with Oliver Ortner (ORF)

Manipulation by social bots, outrage in the tabloids, „fake news” in social media: many elections in past years have been accompanied and influenced by questionable media content. Now the election to the European Parliament is approaching: How can media coverage stay true to the facts? How does information have to be presented to inspire and deserve confidence? What is the significance of regulations like the editorial statutes?
