Chatting with a friend yesterday while he bemoaned the lack of reporting in our "newspapers" any mention of important news or questioning of the Party line (read LNP).
In my view the traditional print press has already gone the way of the dinosaur and we get our news from sources we trust which is increasingly electronic and fem people we know or can at least get a feeling for.
Online only pubs like The Conversation or The Guardian (Australian edition for local news) have content that is just not available in print. The Conversation has a disclosure statement with every piece that indicates who pays the writer and if they have a conflict of interests.
Both publications have a comment stream open to any registered (free) user and both have suffered from trolling and need to get their comments in order so that genuinely interested parties with a contribution to make can do so without being trolled out of space or feeling the need to engage with pointless and destructive argument.
In any case we need to recognise that times have changed and if we want news that has integrity we won't get it from traditional sources.
