“Journalism is essential to democracy – forget the web develop for mobile first – citizen journalism.”
Professor Harry Dugmore, has the chair for Mobile and Media Studies at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa. In this chat he looks at the power of radio and discusses why it is so important that there is plurality of voice in society. Harry has thoughts on where those journalists will come from.
He also builds a strong case for why we need public media to maintain the checks and balances on governments and financial institutions. Especially now.
