In the early years of the 21st century, it is not surprising that many journalists, who were already struggling to make a living in the globalised economy, would have been scared by a new threat that they had never faced before: a threat from within.

For more than two decades, the news media have struggled to contain the growing tide of information, information that is increasingly available for free.

For many journalists who are still struggling to survive, the world around them has changed and they are more and more in danger of being swept up in a wave of misinformation.

This is a series that examines the challenges facing journalists today.

Free Press is a national series exploring the challenges that journalists face in our rapidly changing world.
