Watch Melissa Bell (Vox) deliver the Reuters Memorial Lecture – 'We Broke the News. How do we fix it?'

The lecture saw Bell call for the media to stop ’worshipping objectivity’, admit its problems, and be more frank about its position and purpose.

Bell shared nine key ways in which she sees the media as failing, along with some of her suggestions for solutions to the challenges.

She then joined a lively panel discussion featuring Marty Baron (Editor, The Washington Post), Tom Standage (Deputy Editor, The Economist), Ritu Kapur (Co-founder and CEO, Quintillion Media). It was chaired by Alan Rusbridger.
