Quiet News Day Episode 94

31 Aug

Quiet News Day hosts Scott Douglas and Peter Laing return to the podcast chair to discuss the latest news and views from the world of journalism, social media and public relations.

This week, the duo discuss the latest news and views from Edinburgh’s television festival - including an analysis of the BBC’s comedy policy in the year since the “Sachsgate” furore.

This week’s show also features a special interview with Scott Wright, the editor of Scottish Licensed Trade News, a discussion about online defamation cases, an overview of the potential problems that can arise from Groupon and Living Social deals – and a look at how facebook campaigns can help, rather than hinder, businesses in Scotland.

As always links to the stories discussed are included in the show notes below.
