Lay-offs. Online convergence. A mass of content and noise. Citizen journalists, clickbait and PR. Digital platforms. Political influence. Mainstream media. Funding. Regulations... There are many factors contributing to the changing mediascape today in Aotearoa.
This book explores the changing nature of journalism in this country: as it once was, as it is today, and how we might imagine it working in the future.
"Journalism today is facing more pressure and change but also more opportunity than ever before. To have such a diverse range of views on reimagining journalism is important in navigating what happens next - both for those in the industry and those who value what journalism in New Zealand should look like." – Paula Penfold (contributing author).
The book explores the strengths and weaknesses of the traditional media and seeks new directions we could take to enhance journalism’s role as the fourth estate and as an important pillar of democracy.
Contributions come from a broad range of highly-respected, experienced journalists, commentators, academics, writers, thinkers, designers, as well as emerging journalists. including Peter Arnett, Brent Edwards, Mihingarangi Forbes, Toby Morris, Paula Penfold, Nicky Hager, Morgan Godfery, Simon Wilson, Cate Brett, Sara Vui-Talitu and many more
