In the era of fake news, who would want to be a political reporter?

And is fake news even a thing in Australia?

SKY NEWS political editor and Walkley winner David Speers didn’t hold back in his 2017 Press Freedom Australia Dinner speech tonight.

“I was asked to speak tonight about political reporting in the era of ‘fake news’,” he began. “It seems to be the issue dominating media industry discussion around the world over the past 12 months, but I’ve got a slightly different take in the Australian context as to what sort of threat it poses.”
