The Hearing: Episode 74 – Will Moy (Full Fact)

Did you know the moon landings were faked? Or that The Beatles never existed? And do you remember when conspiracy theories were much more innocent?

In this episode, Becky Annison speaks with Will Moy, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Full Fact, about the perils of misinformation in the digital age. Full Fact is a British charity that checks claims made by politicians, public institutions and journalists, and claims made by viral content circulating on social media.

Will believes ‘bad information ruins lives’ by promoting hate, damaging health and hurting democracy. Becky and Will discuss how the law and lawyers have been caught up in this problem, and what we can do to help tackle the issue.
