As Facebook begins to comprehend the scale of the problem of fake news, who should take responsibility? And how do we improve media literacy? Olly Mann is joined by Louise Ridley (Buzzfeed), media writer Maggie Brown and Faraz Osman (Lemonade Money) to discuss this and the week’s other media news.

Elsewhere on the pod, the panel discuss the announcement that David Walliams will be the launch host of ITV’s new late night talk show – at the expense of News At Ten. Must we again call Tom Bradby’s programme News at When?

Plus we round-up another busy week at the BBC, with the proposed launch of ‘the Netflix of radio’, more changes in commissioning and what Saturday night TV will be like without the National Lottery results.

Oh, and a quiz. Of course.
