Project: Research

Project Details


ARC DP 22 led by Professor terry Flew at University of Sydney

Layman's description

The ongoing crisis of news media business models, and its implications for journalism, have thrown up new questions about the value of news, and the role of governments in financing its production. This project makes a distinctive contribution in identifying the links between three levels: the preparedness of individuals and organisations to pay for news through subscriptions (micro); the value of news brands and the decisions of news organisations (meso); and social and public value contributing to a democratic public sphere (macro). It advances key debates about the future of public interest journalism in an age of social news, as well as addressing policy issues about funding journalism as advertising transfers to digital platforms.
