Rip It Up & Start Again (028, Mar 2012)

Rip It Up & Start Again gathered together a panel of journalism practitioners to look at the current state of the trade, where it goes from here, the rise of content aggregators and curators and what this means for established publications and titles.

Thanks to our panelists – Frank Fitzgibbon (Editor, The Sunday Times Ireland), Brian Fallon (co-founder Distilled MediaThe Journal,,, Gavin Sheridan (The, Storyful) and Paul Mallon (ex-deputy editor The Star On Sunday and assistant editor The Star, currently editorial manager at Paddy Power) – for an illuminating night out. No doubt, we will be engaging in more omphaloskepsis on the state of the media trade in future Banters.
