Economic Slowdown, CNN & BBC Showdowns

Sony reduces its podcast spend, and ITV revenues are down – but are they the outliers in the advertising downturn?

Media news and analysis, from Matt Deegan, Deadline’s Jake Kanter and Edelman’s Karin Robinson.

Also on the programme: It’s Trump vs CNN… again. What lessons did the broadcaster learn from the last election cycle? Is the BBC handling the Local Radio restructure right? Or is it, as Private Eye reported, ‘a clusterf***?’

Plus, on the deep dive this week we look at the perils of reporting on the Depp trials of the UK and US.

All that, plus a media quiz on the best media quotes of the week.
