Alan and Lionel talk to Marty Baron, perhaps the most distinguished and garlanded editor in America since Watergate.Collision of Power is Baron’s book about his time at the Washington Post, which won 10 Pulitzer Prizes under his leadership. He discusses standing up to then-President Donald Trump and the transformative impact of the Post’s new owner Jeff Bezos, while Marty and Alan compare notes about publishing the Edward Snowden story under high pressure from governments and intelligence services.Media Confidential also considers the chaos at GB News, after Laurence Fox’s on-air comments about Ava Evans, and whether Ofcom can reel it in.Follow us on X (Twitter): @MediaConfPodProspect brings rigorously fact-checked analysis, ideas and perspectives to the big topics the world is grappling with.
