Dare to Disagree - meet the BBC journalist who explains how newsrooms decide to cover the stories that divide us the most

January 13, 2021

Meet Charlotte Rose, a broadcast journalist and political reporter for the BBC. In this episode, Charlotte talks to hosts Io and Tony about the dilemmas news organisations face when reporting on debates that evoke strong feelings on both sides, especially when the available evidence supports one side more than the other. She also talks about the role constructive disagreement plays in deciding which stories to cover in the first place and how the way we consume news is just as responsible - if not more so- for the polarisation of public discourse today.
