Discussion with Krisztina Bombera Hungarian journalist/TV presenter and Szabolcs Panyi investigative journalist, with Chrys Margaritidis

ABOUT / Among other benefits, the Internet Era brought us the promise of faster, more reliable and more accessible information. Lately, this promise has been breached. Cambridge Analytica aspired to profile and present us with what we want to hear and not reality. Fake news were used to swing the US general elections one way or another. Misinformation, fake news and what to do about them is currently one of the most important topics on online behavior. We discuss these topics with Krisztina Bombera, Hungarian journalist and TV presenter, and Szabolcs Panyi, investigative journalist, especially relating to the situation in Hungary.
