Tim Dunlop: new media versus old media is old news

3 Dec 2013

Tim Dunlop, author of The New Front Page: New Media and the Rise of the Audience, argues we need to stop talking about new media versus old media and instead look at ways for them to work together in service of the citizens they purport to serve.

As far as the media is concerned: this is the best of times, this is the worst times.

The worst, because no one has figured out how to make the important journalism on which a democracy relies pay for – and thus sustain – itself.

The best, because the new technologies have unleashed an unprecedented level of information that makes it possible for people to be better informed than ever.
