New News: Media Policy Makers and Shakers: What can government do?

Listen to New News: Media Policy Makers and Shakers: What can government do?

Two years ago, our media was convulsed by panic over the Finkelstein Inquiry into news media regulation and the Convergence Review. What happened about all that, and what should have happened? What, if anything, can government do to encourage a vibrant news media?

With Paul Fletcher, parliamentary secretary to the Minister for Communications, Greens Senator Scott Ludlam, Jason Clare, Shadow Minister for Communications, Malcolm Long, member of the Media Convergence Review. Chaired by Julian Thomas, Swinburne University of Technology.

New News was presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre and the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne.
