Alan Rusbridger, best known for his 20-year tenure as editor-in-chief at the Guardian, thinks the business model for news is broken. After all, during his tenure, The Guardian was known for impactful journalistic work like breaking the phone-hacking scandal and publishing news of the NSA’s covert data collection programs — and for making giant losses.

In Rusbridger’s memoir, “Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now” published in September, he aims to describe the changes of the news industry from the inside, pointing towards how journalism can be relevant, trusted and a functioning pillar of democratic society.
