Mr Tor Clark

Tor Clark has over 30 years’ experience as a regional and national political journalist. He has edited a series of books on journalism and politics and is frequently invited to provide expert commentary around general elections and media controversies.

The last five years have seen a profound change in the relationship between journalism and politics both in the UK and abroad. Journalists have failed to acknowledge changes in society but politicians have also come to denigrate the role journalism plays in society and democracy. Both these changes can be seen as worrying trends for the general public who rely on good journalism to navigate the politics they need to understand in order to participate in society.

Tor explores these changes in his four most recent books, the latest Brexit, Boris and the Media was published March 2020 and he is currently working on a new book on COVID-19, politics and journalism, due for publication early 2021.
