RMIT's Graduate Diploma in Journalism presents a panel discussion with industry leaders.
As media fragments and consumers morph into producers, how is journalism changing?
As unfiltered "news" floods the internet, does anybody know the difference between fact and opinion?
And as a new generation, reared in a very different society, joins the media, what do they need to know about the professional standards that have driven traditional outlets?
In this symposium, working journalists and editors debate the changing nature of journalism and the challenges for media operators and teachers at a time of disruption – not just of the business models but also of the Western media culture that developed and dominated in the 20th century. Objective, independent journalism remains the goal, but is it still possible in a time of such change?
