In Losing the News, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Alex S. Jones explores the epochal changes sweeping the media landscape — and what they could mean for our democracy. While today's technological innovations are dazzling, what stands to be lost is the iron core of news that serves as a watchdog over government, holds the powerful accountable, and gives citizens what they need. Losing the News is a vivid depiction of the dangers facing fact-based, reported news, but it is also a call to arms. Despite the current crisis, there are many hopeful signs, and Jones closes by looking over the horizon and exploring ways the iron core of news can be preserved.
