The core of the book consists of 12-16 interviews of current or former chief editors from different media sectors. The book will describe their daily work and how it has changed e.g. by the social media. The most important aspect discussed will be the role of a chief editor as the implementor of the high principles of the freedom of speech in the choices and decisions required by the daily production of their medium.
