An Evening Panel Discussion

The evening panel discussion will address the following issues:

  • What do we mean by competition and choice in the news media market?

  • Are smaller news providers being squeezed out?

  • Does the News Corp takeover of Sky present a threat to “plurality”?

  • How useful a concept is “plurality” in the digital and new media age – hasn’t choice and access to information ballooned in such a way to allay most or all “plurality” fears?
