William Horsley, International Director for the Centre for Freedom of the Media (CFOM) at the University of Sheffield, provokes the question: Is balance out of date?

Will new ways be found to hold power to account? Or are we heading back towards information fortresses?A Festival of Debate event, hosted by not-for-profit social enterprise Opus Independents (which also publishes the Alt-Sheff "Localcheck" column in "Now Then" magazine).
