What's it like to be a political reporter today, when breaking news is measured by second-by-second tweets (instead of next-day newspapers)? How has it changed over the decades?

In this Fifth Estate special, recorded live at Melbourne Writers Festival 2015, we hear from Fairfax's Latika Bourke and ABC TV's Barrie Cassidy. Hosted by Sally Warhaft.
