'Hacking, the Murdoch press and politics' - Jon Sopel guest lecture now online

Published: 1 December 2011 Origin:  Politics and International Relations

We were honoured to have former University of Southampton Politics student and outstanding political journalist Jon Sopel give us his time to speak to colleagues and students about his experiences.

Jon Sopel, presenter on the Politics Show and awarding winning political journalist, visited Southampton recently following an invitation to present from the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences.

He not only provided an insight into the topical phone hacking scandal and politcal history of print media, but also took time to answer questions from students and was interviewed by Head of Politics Graham Smith . These are both viewable in the right-hand link.

The best part of the job is being in places where you think a little bit of history is unfolding and you’re there watching it.
