Mediawatch for 9 September 2012
Mediawatch talks to some overseas experts about the ways 'new media' are now colliding with the old - TV, radio and newspapers - in the digital age. Fast-growing online outlets now deliver news quickly, cheaply and directly to people, wherever they are. But by speeding up the news, are they also undermining it? And should the likes of Google contribute more to the creation of the content that they make so freely available online? Also: some startling mistakes made in recent reports of the death of the world's best-known names, and newspapers having a makeover.
