    I found the debate very illuminating in that Dan Hodges did not change my view that the Daily Mail and other newspapers print lies, one point raised was the "news' that Turkey was about to join the EU. Information was easily obtainable at the time that stated that Turkey was 10 to 20 years away from being able to join the EU, unfortunately Dan Hodges very quickly changed the subject and that was not properly debated. That lie about Turkey possibly had more influence on people voting to leave the EU than any other untruth spouted by the right wing media at the time.

    It was tough for both sides. Agree with the other comment above that he didn't change my opinion on the right wing press. It was a learning curve for all. However, amazing that this platform exists and long may it continue.
