In the post-Trump, post-Brexit world, many believe journalism is now
experiencing an existential crisis. AFP’s Editor-in-Chief, Phil Chetwynd, will

grapples with a new reality -- the need to report on the false as well as the true.

and new projects scheduled for 2019. We will look at fact-checking with
particular focus on the European migration story and the incendiary politics
