Does serious journalism have a future in Canada?
We all know the news media is in trouble in the digital age. The problem is more one of supply – who will deliver journalism and earn the most money from it – rather than one of demand. People still want to be informed. This report is the outcome of our 2015 Prime Ministers of Canada Fellowship. For the past year, award-winning journalist Madelaine Drohan has focused her attentions with this fellowship on how journalism informs policy-making in Canada. Her report looks at the main threats facing journalism in Canada and traces the outline of possible solutions. This timely analysis comes amid important trends that are causing a decline in substantial, in-depth reporting on public policy.
