Lord Faulks speaks at the 20th anniversary of the Society of Editors

New Chair of IPSO Lord Faulks spoke at a reception celebrating 20 years of the Society of Editors.

While congratulating the Society for their longstanding dedication to protecting freedom of expression, he declared his commitment to “free and rigorous, courageous yet accountable press”. 

He added that “while it is something of a cliché to say that we live in a time of fake news, it is all the more important to get your news from a source which is curated and produced by publishers that are identifiable and accountable”.
