Journalist and media commentator John Lloyd looks at the state of journalism in the modern post-truth age.

Lloyd looks at the technological, market and political changes affecting modern media. He takes in the decline of the newspaper in the West, the threats posed by fake news and Donald Trump, the role of Facebook and Twitter in the Arab Spring, Wikileaks and the growing self-confidence of African journalism.

Lloyd is a senior research fellow at the University of Oxford and co-founded its Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism. His other books include What the Media Are Doing to Our Politics and Journalism in an Age of Terror, and he is a contributing editor at the Financial Times.
