Research Priority Report: News Futures: Research & Policy Roundtable

Research output: Book/ReportOther


In recent years radical changes in the news media industries, largely driven by the rise of digital platforms, have moved news media from the periphery to the centre of government policy agendas. Research conducted by the News & Media Research Centre (N&MRC) highlights that relentless disruption to the news industry and decline in news consumption are coupled with the challenges of combatting misinformation and low levels of media literacy. Research shows the heightened thirst for news during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic has not been sustained, with substantial levels of complacency and misunderstanding among news consumers about the current state of the news media industries.
