The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport established the Cairncross Review to examine the sustainability of high quality journalism. The review is particularly concerned with the press and says that it will give equal weight to the needs of consumers and industry. But many fear its real intention is to justify subsidising corporate news organisations that have already failed to act in the public interest and are more concerned with profit margins than democratic intent.
What do you think? What is wrong with our press and how can we fix it? What should the Cairncross Review recommend?
Come and debate this critical issue of our times with:
Chair: Professor Natalie Fenton (Media Reform Coalition)
- Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ General Secretary
- Dr Martin Moore, Kings College London.
- Professor Angela Phillips, Goldsmiths University of London.
- Kerry-Ann Mendoza, The Canary
- Jim Cusick, Journalist
This meeting has been organised by the Media Reform Coalition, it is a FREE event and open to all.
