Got questions on the future of news?

Tune in to a series of virtual debates organized by The Economist.

They'll be hosted by Tom Standage, digital editor at The Economist and the author of the magazine's special report on the news industry.

From July 7 to August 3, The Economist will invite readers and guests to participate in a series of online debates that consider the future of the industry.

Some of the main questions: What business models will best serve news firms? How important is objectivity in the news industry? Is the power of the press now diminished? And how much does that matter?

Starting at 4 p.m. in London and 11 a.m. in New York, the discussion will appear online and on Twitter via @econdiscuss.
