The FFS Show Episode 15: Right Said Fred is Wrong about Covid-19 (w/ Nik Williams)

Ferret Fact Service | Scotland's impartial fact check project GERS

Ali and Sam are back and this week they are asking you: Can you name 3 artists at the top of the music charts back in 1991?

Right Said Fred got to number two in the charts back then, but 30 years later they are number 1 when it comes to Covid-19 misinformation being spread on Twitter. In this episode we explain what’s wrong with their recent statements and give you the background behind it.

Ali also has a conversation with Nik Williams, a Ferret board member and media freedom expert.
