Reportage and speedy journalism has changed the expectations for long-form non-fiction, with the appetite for opinion-based writing in a so-called post-truth media threatening to override the slow, meticulous discipline we used to demand. Now that writers are not only encouraged but almost expected to talk about themselves, what does this mean for the quality of the writing? Tim Dunlop asks Santilla Chingaipe, Robert Skinner and Drew Rooke: can we trust what we read?
