Media Masters podcast
Interview by Paul Blanchard.
Alan Rusbridger is former editor-in-chief of the Guardian. During his two decades at the helm, he masterminded the newspaper’s transformation into a global digital brand with a reach of over 150 million, and played a central role in coverage of major events including the phone hacking scandal, Wikileaks, and the Pulitzer prize-winning revelations involving whistleblower Edward Snowden. In this in-depth interview, he argues why President Trump’s anti-media crusade has “done us all a favour”, and how introducing media literacy lessons in schools will help young people distinguish fact from fiction.
