Katharine Murphy “On Disruption” and the ever-accelerating news cycle
Guardian Australia‘s political editor and award-winning journalist Katharine Murphy reflects on how technology has shaken the foundations of the media industry in her new work On Disruption.
The Internet has fundamentally shifted the way we produce and consume media and engage with our world. Public and private lives are wrought by the 24-hour, seven-day-a-week news cycle that means no one is ever off duty. On Disruption is a report from the coalface of that change: what has happened, will it keep happening, and is there any way out of the chaos?
2ser’s Anthony Dockrill spoke with Katharine, reflecting on how the media landscape has changed since her career began in 1996.
