Pacific Conversations: Stephanie Zuniga-Maher and Tess Connery on US and Australian Media Concentration
Journalism and media, the fourth estate, is responsible for framing the political issues of the day so that voters can make informed decisions. But what happens when that power is concentrated into too few hands? And when does informing the public cross the line into advocacy?
Stephanie Zuniga-Maher is the Democrats Abroad Australia Global Black Caucus Chair and lifelong lover of politics, Tess Connery is a journalist for Mediaweek and a former Breakfast Host for 2ser 107.3 in Sydney. They join Ed and Sean to discuss the issues now affecting the political and media spheres in Australia and the US, and the need for greater education.
