Summary
  • Former editor of The Guardian newspaper discusses the shifts in the news landscape in recent years and what those shifts might mean for the future of democracy
  • Technology has radically altered the news landscape: once-powerful newspapers have been purchased by owners with particular agendas; algorithms select which stories we see; the Internet spreads dangerous misinformation at the speed of a click. Rusbridger demonstrates how these shifts have occurred, and what they mean for the future of democracy. As an editor at the British daily The Guardian, he oversaw world-shaking scoops and helped The Guardian become a pioneer in Internet journalism. Now he offers a vital assessment of the risks and rewards of practicing journalism in a high-impact, high-stress time. -- adapted from jacket
  • "Technology has radically altered the news landscape. Once-powerful newspapers have lost their clout or been purchased by owners with particular agendas. Algorithms select which stories we see. The Internet allows consequential revelations, closely guarded secrets, and dangerous misinformation to spread at the speed of a click. In Breaking News, Alan Rusbridger demonstrates how these decisive shifts have occurred, and what they mean for the future of democracy. In the twenty years he spent editing The Guardian, Rusbridger managed the transformation of the progressive British daily into the most visited serious English-language newspaper site in the world. He oversaw an extraordinary run of world-shaking scoops, including the exposure of phone hacking by London tabloids, the Wikileaks release of U.S.diplomatic cables, and later the revelation of Edward Snowden's National Security Agency files. At the same time, Rusbridger helped The Guardian become a pioneer in Internet journalism, stressing free access and robust interactions with readers. Here, Rusbridger vividly observes the media's transformation from close range while also offering a vital assessment of the risks and rewards of practicing journalism in a high-impact, high-stress time." -- Publisher's description
