Is Australian Media Broken?

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 31 July 2024 06:30 PM
Event Venue: The Wheeler Centre
Event Organiser: The Wheeler Centre
Ticket Price: $20 – $29

Traditional news media has always played an important role in framing debate about key issues of the day for Australians. But does it still? With the disrupting forces of new media avenues – from social media and podcasts, to newsletters and independent publications – and their impact on the news we consume, there have never been more voices to turn to and more ways to voice our own opinions. We might have more control over what we read and listen to, but how are these new outlets affecting the quality of journalism? How do we cut through the noise, and can we still trust mainstream media to provide the full picture? Join our expert panel spanning traditional, mainstream and independent news journalism – Jan Fran, Amy McQuire and Tom Elliott – as they unpack these urgent questions and the quality of contemporary news reporting with host Rachel Withers.
