Interview: Rory O’Connor “Social Media Democratizes the Distribution of Information”

Author of Friends, Followers and the Future Rory O’Connor stopped by the City Lights publishing offices to speak with Stacey Lewis about his new book. Listen to what he has to say about how social media are going to infiltrate every aspect of our lives:

“This is a timely book about a vital subject: How do we get information and is it reliable? With a ‘cold eye,’ author Rory O’Connor shows how traditional journalism cheapened its value by sabotaging its trust, and how the digital revolution wonderfully democratizes information yet often removes the journalistic curator, creating more noise, more ME and less WE news. If you want to understand the future of news, its opportunities and its pitfalls, read this book.” —Ken Auletta, author and New Yorker media writer
