Stephen Fry: Twitter Won't Replace Journalists

Wednesday 8th February 2012

Stephen Fry has told LBC 97.3 that his beloved Twitter will never replace traditional journalism.

The BAFTA host has almost 4million followers on the social media platform, but he told Nick Ferrari that we can't simply rely on Twitter for news ahead of broadcasters and reporters.

Speaking about the Leveson Enquiry, Mr Fry said that the showbiz side of reporting was a necessary evil to fund sending journalists aroundthe world to places like Syria.
