Hear New York University’s Jay Rosen’s conversation with Melbourne emerging journalists.

True to form, Rosen addressed the current challenges in media, calling election coverage ‘horse-race journalism’. Perhaps, according to Rosen, it’s more important to focus on what our country needs rather than which nose crosses first.

Jay Rosen was in Australia for the Walkley Media Conference, an initiative of the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance.
