With the ever increasing avenues to gather information, it has become necessary to dig deep for accurate and credible news.Taking cue from how instances on new media platforms like social messaging applications and micro-blogging sites have led to various conflicts in different regions and states around the world, we believe our agenda is of utmost importance.
Keeping in mind the public’s sentiments and the spirit of the fighting forces, does biased reporting using unverified sources also serve to boost the nation’s morale, especially in the time of conflict?
With this, the Department of Journalism at LSR presents the annual turncoat debate, VOXPOP.
The motion for the debate is “This house believes that it is necessary to use Verified Sources to report News to the Public in a State of Conflict”; which is directly under the aegis of the theme for Juxtapose 2017.
Looking forward to seeing your arguments on the 21st of September!
