PODCAST: Making the news at the UN


UN News publishes stories in 10 languages, with the aim of ensuring that as many people as possible understand the impact of the United Nations, and in order to provide a reliable news source on a variety of platforms.

On today’s show, Conor Lennon speaks to Mita Hosali, who is in overall charge of the UN’s news output, as Deputy Director of the News and Media Division at the UN. They discuss the ways in which the concepts of news, information, and truth are seemingly being questioned as never before, how UN News can continue to fulfil its mandate, and what can be done to combat the growing scourge of disinformation.
