What’s Gone Wrong With Political Language?

In this episode, I speak to Mark Thompson. Mark is the current CEO of the New York Times and prior to that he was director general of the BBC from 2004 to 2012. We discuss what has gone wrong with today’s political language. We ask whether critical debate has become impossible in the UK and the US and what role the media play in exacerbating political tension.

We also look at the challenges facing the journalism industry.
