Abstract

By Nuala Gathercole-Lam, an LSE MSc student in Media, Communication and Development A majority of those who came out to vote on June 23rd chose for Britain to leave the EU and I will not advocate for their vote to be disregarded. However, the situation was not as simple as Theresa May would have us believe. When we exercise our democratic rights, we do not do so in isolation – the news media plays a significant role in shaping public opinion, and so is a major player in our democracy.
