Mass media on menu in Paris

With social networks wreaking revolutions and alternative news sites breaking boundaries, what is the role of the media in today’s globalized world? Information, and how it is delivered, is the focus of a far-reaching conference in Paris this week.

­As globalization touches on virtually all aspects of our lives, the mass media have experienced major shake-ups, both technical and conceptual. And while many mainstream media persist in covering news by covering up the truth, some less conventional outlets suggest “any story can be a different story altogether”.

So can “other news” become an alternative to the traditional system? RT’s Deputy Head is set to discuss this, as Russian and European media gurus share their experience in Paris on November 24.

Among other topics are the ethical norms regulating the everyday work of reporters, and national interest in international journalism.
