What does a ‘free press’ really mean? - with Mathilda Mallinson and Helena Wadia

Print is dying. Since the arrival of the internet and fast-paced, free information at the tap of the finger, the news outlets that tell us what’s what have been scrambling to find their footing. Some have been haemorrhaging money for decades, others have become richer than ever. But at what cost?

In this special feature from hosts of Media Storm (The Guilty Feminist’s investigative little sister!), journalists Mathilda Mallinson and Helena Wadia break down the different funding models that make up our mainstream media.

We also hear all their plans for the coming new season! Watch. This. Space.
