About Media on Trial

‘Media on Trial’ is a grassroots movement instigated by Frome Stop War, an independent anti-war organisation. The goal is to cultivate a public scepticism when faced with establishment and corporate media’s partisan reporting at times of conflict.

Since the appalling disinformation disseminated when our government was debating the Iraq invasion, the same media, rather than reforming their reporting procedures, have continually used biased and dubious sources to propagandise for deadly interventions and regime change.

For this reason, and because glaring examples of media misinformation in the lead up to regime change or interventions have come to light, Frome Stop War and its expert panel of speakers will again put the ‘Media on Trial’, our next event being Leeds on Sunday 27th May.
