BEFORE BRUNCH: Bias, Digital Media And The Eighth Referendum

By Megan Cassidy

May 20, 2018 at 9:47am


With less than a week until we head for the polling stations to make a decision on one of the most important issues of our time, how has media coverage around the Eighth Referendum been so far? 
With publications wearing their bias like a badge of honour, how has new media contributed to the conversation? Has it aided it, or hampered it? Should all coverage be regulated in order to facilitate healthy debate? 
In a referendum that is all about stories, and personal experience, how are the Yes and No sides speaking to each other on the ground, away from the scaremongering posters and extreme tactics?
