DG editor Rob Orchard in conversation with Ian Hislop at Slow Journalism Night

In January 2020, we held a Slow Journalism Night at Somerset House featuring special guest Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye magazine. The topic: Fake news and satire in the age of Trump and Johnson. Hislop was full of fascinating and amusing insights, including…

  • How an eminent astronomer fell foul of fake news in the 19th century
  • The challenges of satirising Donald J Trump
  • Why people still send him angry letters about Boris Johnson
