Something is very wrong with the news industry. Trust in the media has hit an all-time low; we’re inundated with sensationalist stories, and consistent, high-quality reporting is scarce, says journalist and entrepreneur Lara Setrakian. She shares three ways we can fix the news and make the complex issues of our time easier to understand.
- Idea number one: we need news that’s built on deep-domain knowledge.
- Idea number two: we need a kind of Hippocratic oath for the news industry, a pledge to first do no harm.
- Idea number three: We need to embrace complexity if we want to make sense of a complex world.
