Foreign Correspondents Ep. 107 Social media and journalism
Is social media a fake news platform or a viable news source?

Fake news circulating across the world of local politics, the economy and society has stirred up a fresh round of controversy in South Korea. Following the return from his visit to Vietnam on September 26, Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon declared war on fake news, which he said was undermining democracy and social cohesion in the country. According to research, fake news is most often distributed through social media, rather than traditional mediums such as television and newspapers. Unverified stories have circulated rapidly through platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, contributing to the view that social media has become the main source of origin for most fake news stories. Social media however, has also proved to be an invaluable tool for journalists, while allowing rapid coverage of on-site developments in many disaster zones by its users. In this week's edition of "Foreign Correspondents", we take a look at social media and the duality of its nature in the field of journalism.
