New media: helping or hindering, fostering accountability or producing vulnerabilities, advancing journalism or simply complicating it? That’s at the heart of Nik Gowing’s new report for the Reuter’s Institute at Oxford. An extensive study of the interplay between journalism and foreign affairs, ‘Skyful of Lies’and Black Swans paints today’s highly digitized and interconnected world as one that’s rapidly democratizing power. In extreme moments of crises (referring to Nassim Taleb’s black swan theory), the state can no longer hide realities from the world. This report by Polis Intern Esha Chhabra.
