Stop the Press

Sat 23 Feb 2013

There is a distinct lack of sustained and in-depth commentary about significant political and social issues in this country. Is this a failure of the press to properly analyse issues of national interest? Or is it a failure of the public to engage in issues more fully? Steve Lewis, Laura Tingle, Michael Leunig and David Marr consider what drives the media today.
