Breitbart News is not the media world’s Uber


Assistant professor Anders Ravn Sørensen engages in a debate in the newspaper Børsen with Professor Nicolai Juul Foss on the pros and cons of disruptive news outlets and media-platforms.


Anders Ravn Sørensen responds to an opinion piece by Professor Nicolai Juul Foss on disruption and the endorsement of “Fake News”. According to Sørensen, new media outlets such as Infowars and Breitbart pose a threat to democratic dialogue because they deliberately challenge existing ideas of true and false – and at the same time the US. president is himself endorsing arguments and statements that are objectively not true.
