Strategies to Build Trust and Handle Polarisation
About this premium video
How do we cover disagreement in society? The playbook of polarisation, extreme populism, and attacks on the press is no longer exclusive to a handful of authoritarian regimes. Newsrooms all over experience degrees of these problems and struggle to develop a consistent strategy to maintain trust. The editor in chief of Folha de S.Paulo, Sérgio Dávila, shares a whole range of measures he implemented to keep journalists safe and protect his newspaper's long tradition of independence. Author and former Financial Times editor Lionel Barber shares fundamental challenges such as how to handle the dilemma of journalistic objectivity when polarisation is good for business and how to guide an impatient younger generation of journalists and editors to preserve a degree of professional detachment when tempted to scrap journalistic traditions and practice.
