Newsopalypse: Can Digital Really Sustain Media?

Friday, March 11
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Sheraton Austin
Capitol Ballroom
701 E 11th St

Newspapers and magazines collapse, TV news contracts, and the digital channels that replace them spew listicles, recanted rumors, redcarpet galleries, and thousands of links to the same story. Without a mediaeconomy to support enterprise reporting, deep investigation that uncovers abuses of power, can journalism any longer serve democracy? Are there business models to support a “Fourth Estate?” Crowdfunding? Philanthropy? Micropayments? How can the media of the future make enough digital dimes to sustain their institutional role as democracy’s watchman?
