Fake News - Authentic Views

The impact of mass disinformation campaigns on geopolitics, news media, corporate communications and the culture of democratic societies.

Over recent months a growing number of our clients have encountered a set of intertwined issues arising from large-scale, deliberate, coordinated assaults on reputation, using modern communications techniques.

This nexus of problems is popularly referred to as Fake News, a term which is itself controversial. Many commentators argue that it conceals as much as it explains and that certain public figures are stretching its meaning through over-use. But the phenomenon our clients are seeking to manage is very real.
