Earlier this year I filmed a number of interviews with senior media editors and I asked them what they believed was the point of journalism today.
Are journalists still the watchdogs of society? And if so, how should they engage better with their audiences in order to improve the tasks of investigation, interpretation and dissemination?
The editors are from a range of mainstream and digital outlets from the UK, France and Australia, including Le Monde, The Times and The Huffington Post.
The video interviews were edited by Gerard Escaich I Folch, a journalism exchange student from Barcelona.
The page was created and produced by Monash lecturer Julie Tullberg.
