Podcast: Emily Bell on Facebook and fake news

Does Facebook need to clean up its act? Can newsrooms overcome the longstanding culture clash between tech and editorial? And what about coverage of those Trump tweets?

We discuss all that and more on The Kicker, where I’m joined this week by CJR Tow Editor Nausicaa Renner and special guest Emily Bell, director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism.
