Event explores 'the point of' newspapers

The Sun 20 years on

 

Would The Sun be able to write their infamous Hillsborough headline today?

'What's the Point of...' is a series of discussion groups exploring cultural issues.

The latest is a seminar exploring the rise and arguable fall of the newspaper. The group sets to explore the health of tabloid and broadsheet journalism as they compete with digital communications for readers and struggle to retain integrity and relevancy in a post-Leveson Inquiry culture.

Held at Liverpool's Cotton Exchange and led by WEA volunteer and sociology lecturer Nev Bann, attendance to the discussion is free to WEA volunteers and members.
