Posted by New Scientist on Sunday, 28 February 2017 13:59:37The New Yorker has become the first news organisation to broadcast a live video stream of its live coverage of the Brexit referendum from the UK Parliament.
The decision to broadcast the live stream was made after the Brexit vote, and has sparked much debate over what role the media can play in shaping public opinion.
The live stream, which is being posted at 10pm ET on Sunday morning, will show the Parliament and a panel of experts debating the consequences of Brexit on Britain and the wider world.
It is not clear how many people will be watching the live broadcast, and it is not immediately clear whether the live feed will be available in the UK.
The BBC is currently the only broadcaster in the world that can carry live broadcasts of its broadcasts in a live online version.
The Brexit referendum has been seen as a turning point in British politics, with voters in many countries, including the US and Australia, deciding to leave the European Union.
