The Kenya Media Week forum happened last month and the following are highlights picked up from the discussion.
Due to the rise of fake content being circulated, most editors are very curious to know where journalists source their stories from. They often ask questions like, " What do you know? " and " How do you know it? ". This is not because they don't trust the journalists, but to ensure that the stories are verified. Most media houses/journalists are sometimes misled by their sources of information. Stories have to be counter-checked because almost everyone wants to avoid being sued for defamation.
