... there is much talk of getting back to ‘normal’. That all assumes that our earlier ways of running society and Church were the best that they could be – Bishop McKeown.
“In a time where some speak of a ‘post-truth’ society, one in which ‘alternative facts’ and ‘fake news’ are the order of the day, we know that ‘the word of God is alive’ (Heb 4:12)” – Bishop Dermot Farrell.
“There is great potential to communicate the truth of the Gospel on the digital highways. It is important that we do so at all times with compassion and love.”
“It is very clear that good journalism really does matter. Social media has opened the doors to so-called ‘fake news’, widespread anonymous comment, and a scarcity of thoroughly researched news stories.”
There is a challenge to ensure that Christ’s message continues to be communicated in a rapidly developing media age, where “fake news” can seem plausible.
