Alan Rusbridger examines the past, present and future of the press: social media has created a vast amount of unreliable and false news which now competes with, and sometimes drowns, more established forms of journalism. The President of the United States regularly lies to the public and brands his critics ‘fake’. Politicians openly rubbish the views of ‘so-called experts’. Where can we look for reliable, verifiable sources of news and information? What does all this mean for democracy? And what will the future hold?

‘an urgent reminder that there is still a place for real journalism – indeed, our democracies depend on it.’ Edward Snowden

‘a fascinating book and…an important one.’ Scotsman

‘Alan Rusbridger by great daring, flair, fine judgment and consistent courage has… enhanced the worldwide reputation of a great newspaper… It has been very good for journalism and all of us’ Sir Harold Evans

‘well written and unskimped’ Tom Stoppard in the TLSBooks of the Year 2018
