Bad News for the Media!

Fake news, “infobesity”, media mistrust... The press is in a bad shape and people are sick of hearing the daily news. How did we get to this point? Can we reinvent journalism? Should we create a new and different relationship between news producers and consumers?

Anne-Sophie Novel, a journalist herself, shares her doubts and experience, and questions the impact of the news on the way we view and understand the world.

From France to Denmark, to the United States and United Kingdom, her introspection and questioning is enriched, enlivened, and challenged by many rich conversations and exchanges. The passion of the people she encounters and the experiments she discovers prove that change is coming. Time has come for the media, together with the public, to define new ways of “making the news”.
