The Cooler Lumpur Festival — Funding the News
August 18, 2017 @ 10:30 - 11:30Free
Media organisations no longer have a geographical or technological monopoly on content distribution. Journalists face competitors everywhere. Facebook and Twitter and Snapchat are better at communicating to audiences in the ways they want, when they want. Public trust in media is at an all-time low. And all of this is taking place against a backdrop of increased censorship, violence against journalists, and a drastic decrease in global press freedom. How does journalism survive in such an environment? How can it still be sustainable? On this panel, we are joined by three independent purveyors of news, to hear their thoughts on where the next wave of funding for journalism will come from.
Speakers: Jahabar Sadiq (The Malaysian Insight), Malek Ali (BFM Radio – The Business Station), Chak Onn Lau (Cilisos)
