The Media Rumble
News breaks. News builds. News destroys. News creates. News is the oxygen of the digital age. News is knowledge. News is also entertainment. But it can be so much more. Or so much less. News shapes public opinion, impacts lives, destinies, decisions. It changes thinking, affects attitudes. Newslaundry & Teamwork Arts, join hands to present The Media Rumble (TMR). TMR will be the forum for journalism, to explore where news will go. And where it can. A first-of-its kind coming together of “news” in India, breaking barriers and enabling many unheard voices from across the globe to be heard. Traditional and new media will be discussed in a programme built around the three pillars of “news”: content, technology and the business of news. An exciting specially-curated two-day forum will include enlightening discussions, ﬁlm screenings, talks, interviews and master-classes. Conversations will range from best practices in journalism and innovative and viable business models to journalistic ethics and reportage under adverse circumstances.
