In ‘Knowledge or noise: the problem with political communication’ distinguished journalist Karen Middleton will explore the role of the news media in conveying political messages. Who’s responsible when politicians can’t cut through? And how do we avoid the knowledge we need being lost in all that noise?
Monday 24 October, 5.30-7.30pm. Museum of Australian Democracy, Canberra
