Trump and Biden final US presidential debate: discussion with Peter Beattie of CUHK & misinformation

2020-10-23
There is just 12 days to go before the United States Presidential election. It’s being billed as the most crucial election in US history, in terms of America’s own democracy, and its role in the world. This week, and in the coming two weeks, we’ll be looking at some of the key discussions and issues. The term “fake news”, popularised by Donald Trump, became mainstream during the 2016 election. But misinformation and disinformation on social media – some of it provided by hostile countries - is increasingly plaguing politics, and not only in the US. More on that later.

The first televised presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden on 30th September was chaotic. The debate held this morning Hong Kong time was more orderly and there was a chance for the candidates to describe their policies – whether they made full use of this opportunity is, like the debate itself, debatable and with me to talk about this and what’s at stake in this election is Peter Beattie, professor at the Faculty of Social Science of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse.
