Lionel Barber, editor of the Financial Times

Submitted by HarrietPacker on Thu, 2017-08-17 10:08

Lionel Barber discusses the changing media landscape, the impact of social media, and how the award-winning Financial Times continues to respond to the digital age. The FT’s editor warns about fake news and refers to past propaganda – subjects he will address on Saturday 16 September 2017 at the Alumni Weekend in Oxford (book online to secure your place at this session).

In this wide-ranging podcast interview, Barber gives his perspective on current affairs, from the Europeans having the upper hand in Brexit negotiations to the theatre of Donald Trump’s presidency. He explains how studying German and Modern History at Oxford prepared him for his international career in journalism. Barber also describes the highlight of his student days – playing rugby alongside Blues rugby players during Cuppers.
