Truth costs money
When Alan Rusbridger stepped down as Guardian editor in 2015 he left one of the world’s most trusted news organisations. Rusbridger’s 20-year tenure oversaw international expansion and investigative triumphs, such as the phone hacking scandal. But it also spanned a tumultuous period for newspapers and the rise of fake news. Breaking News is an impassioned defence of good journalism: the study of an industry which shapes our understanding of the world – for now. He talks to author of Truth in Our Times David McCraw, top newsroom lawyer for The New York Times.
