Advice to Young People: Fake News
Alan Rusbridger, Principal of Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford

Alan Rusbridger, Principal of Lady Margaret Hall at the University of Oxford and former Editor-in-Chief of the Guardian gives advice to young people concerning fake news. He urges caution and scepticism when following a new or developing story, and suggests that we all try harder to discern the sources and validity of a news item before necessarily believing it, and certainly before helping it spread further online, especially via social media. Alan also speaks of the freedom coupled with responsibility as technological advances have given everyone the ability to publish on digital platforms.
