The ABC of News in the Age of Fake
Australians are getting more news and information than ever before but trusting less and less of it, as churnalism and fake news proliferates and distinctive and original journalism steadily shrinks.

Yet the need for chasing stories, uncovering new information, rigorous fact-checking, careful editing and exacting editorial standards is greater than ever.
Gaven Morris, the ABC’s Director of News, Analysis & Investigations, believes audiences don’t want media organisations to do more and more - they want them to do better and go deeper, maintaining quality by investing in newsbreaking, in-depth and investigative journalism and providing fast and accurate coverage as big events happen.

At this special lunch event, Morris will argue that this means the media should constantly be asking how to serve the community today, not looking back at how people got their news and information decades ago.
