'I worry that the dike is going to burst - and we're woefully unprepared'
A conversation about the crisis in Canadian media with Rudyard Griffiths, executive director of The Hub and co-founder and chair of the Munk Debates
For the past few months on Lean Out, we’ve been doing a deep-dive into the crisis in Canadian media, speaking to critics of the status quo — and asking what’s gone wrong and where we go from here. My guest on today’s program, the last episode in our summer media series, has a unique perspective on our media’s collapse. And he says government and Big Tech subsidies are compromising the vitality and validity of a free and independent press in Canada.
