Keynote: Maintaining credibility and trust in an age of ‘fake news’

The world is awash with claims of fake news. Digital technologies have radically changed the way news is created and consumed. Social media allows misinformation to spread at lightning speed. Journalism is facing a crisis of trust in an era when reliable, impartial news is more important than ever. How should news providers respond?

In the keynote speech at newsrewired on 11 July, Reuters EMEA chief, Simon Robinson, will explain how the world’s largest international multimedia news provider is addressing these issues by focusing on robust reporting, maintaining independence, increasing transparency and, when they occur, correcting mistakes quickly. The media landscape may have changed dramatically, but the best modern journalism, he will argue, is rooted in old-fashioned reporting values.

Robinson is regional editor for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Reuters. He directs newsgathering and reporting in the region, and oversees budget, strategy, hiring, legal and security issues. Robinson joined the news service in 2010 and ran investigations and enterprise reporting in EMEA for six years, editing award winning series on Iran, Russia, corporate taxation, Greek banks and migration.

Simon edited two Pulitzer finalists, packages of stories on Libya and on Iraq. Between 1995 and 2010 he was a correspondent and then editor for Time magazine, reporting from more than 50 countries in Africa, South Asia, the Middle East and Europe. He has published short stories, and wrote and produced an award-winning satirical movie about aid workers and journalists in Africa.
