[Cancelled] The Future of Media in America and Asia: How to Fight Fake News and Turn a Profit in the Trump Era

[Due to unforeseen circumstances, the event is now postponed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.]


Even in a supposedly "post-truth" era, quality global journalism is making a surprising comeback suggests John Micklethwait, editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News. Thanks in part to Donald Trump's election as the world’s most famous tweeter, warnings of a crisis in journalism have grown louder over recent years. But even amidst rising anxiety about “fake news", a new vision for high-quality global media is developing — one which is automated, personalized, mobile, paid for, and (eventually) less fake. But how will this new era of news play out in this part of the world, and how will it shape our most highly-charged geopolitical debates, from the ongoing US-China trade war to perceptions of Asia's economic rise more generally?
