In his latest book News and How to Use It, the former long-time editor of The Guardian, Alan Rusbridger, casts his eye across the messy media landscape, examines the way journalism is produced and consumed, and offers a user’s guide on how to stay informed at a perplexing time of fast-changing news. Has it ever been more difficult to believe what we watch and read due to the proliferation of competing ‘truths’ online? Join Rusbridger, now chair of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University and a member of Facebook’s Oversight Board, as he offers his insights across a wide swathe of the industry, covering social media, citizen journalism, business models and more, in conversation with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the CBC podcast More.
