The Times columnist on why Trump and Brexit are encouraging people to support good quality journalism
Iain Martin is a columnist for The Times, and Editor of Reaction, a website dedicated to political, economic and cultural analysis. In this in-depth interview, he discusses his journalism career including making Editor of The Scotsman aged thirty, then Editor of Scotland on Sunday, and Deputy Editor of The Sunday Telegraph. He talks through his portfolio career as columnist, blogger, and business owner; says no-one should get too ‘noble’ about journalism as it’s ‘politicians people remember’; argues it’s crucial for the survival of the newspaper industry that Facebook and Google are properly classed as publishers; and maintains that Trump and Brexit have increased public recognition that good quality journalism is essential for a healthy democracy – and should be properly paid for.
