Episode 10 - The Future of News
Play episode · 57 mins
This week, Clare is joined by Press Gallery legends Paul Bongiorno and Amy Remeikis to discuss the future of Australian journalism.

Clare, Amy, and Paul discuss the ways in which reporting has changed over the past few decades, and the challenges journalism faces: shrinking newsrooms, concentrated ownership, the decline in regional reporting, digital disruption, concerns about press freedoms, and the spread of fake news online.

The Australian media is at a tipping point, with longstanding trends accelerating and new problems compounding old ones.

Can politicians get away with more than they used to? Does government have a role in fixing the problems? And what should we all be doing to strengthen the Fourth Estate?

Please leave us a review, let us know what you think, and subscribe to stay up to date with the series.
