“At a time when objective, fact-based journalism is imperilled, The Media Rumble provided ample evidence that facts matter and that quality journalism in India will not only survive but thrive and prosper.”
“The Media Rumble was an impressive event. It took me days to shake off all that I experienced at the forum, to return to my work. It was one of the best conferences I had been to, where the energy was infectious.”
“It was great to be a part of a media conference that caters to and includes media outlets in the Global South. Too often this experience is left out of coverage of newsroom trends. It was great to hear from peers in other regions about their experiences creating sustainable newsrooms.”
“The Media Rumble is an important event because it’s a critique from within…the media is looking within, but it’s also asking others to look at itself, particularly at a time like this when the media is playing a very crucial role in shaping public opinion.”
“A platform like this gives us a chance to interact with people within the fraternity, come together, and come up with solutions and ways in which we can tackle this kind of crisis that is happening.”
