Is digital killing quality journalism or allowing it to thrive?
We live in a world where journalistic exclusives are now exclusive, on average, for less than 3 seconds; in a world of ‘churnalism’ where originators are no more protected than scrapers.
Where does this end?
If original content is no longer easily attributed to brands and can no longer guarantee eyeballs and the advertising revenue these bring, who will fund quality journalism in the future? Does it matter if nobody pays for the origination of professional journalism? When we can all create and distribute our own stories who will be the sources we should trust to edit the ever increasing world of over supplied content?
Danny Josephs (WPP Team News) and Dom Carter (News UK Commercial Managing Director) will host this discussion.
