Lucian is a fan of free speech with a conscience. He thinks that the media should facilitate the free flow of ideas in a society, while also being concerned with fact checking and the spread of fake news. He also believes that the media should aim to create more cohesive societies, while also cultivating diversity of opinions and respect for each participant in the debate. He believes in citizen media – and he sees it as both competition and inspiration for veteran journalists like him. He’s also an avid road cyclist – clocking around 4k kilometers every year.
