The Fifth Estate: Media Meltdown

Listen to The Fifth Estate: Media Meltdown

What is the future for media in Australia? How can newspapers adapt and survive in the digital age? And what is the role of the national broadcaster in a rapidly changing media landscape? As Gina Rinehart makes her bid for Fairfax and News Limited restructures its mastheads, questions abound about ownership and control, editorial independence and the very survival of media as we know it.

Join Sally Warhaft with The Australian’s Editor-at-Large Paul Kelly, veteran media buyer Harold Mitchell, and The Conversation’s Founder and Editor Andrew Jaspan, to discuss these extraordinary times.
