The House Committees of MEAA Media members at Fairfax Media have written to the company's CEO Greg Hywood, seeking a conversation about quality journalism. 

The House Committees said: "In the battle for readers, our biggest competitors are no longer rival newspapers, the wireless or the nightly news. They are still here, of course, but in addition we face their websites, online­-only news sites, our overseas counterparts, blogs, apps, Apple News, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and a plethora of other social media, 24-­hour news TV channels. Our multitasking audience is using two screens at once. There’s more content than ever before competing for their attention.

"We've changed a lot in the past 40 years. Management needs to keep up. Old school thinking and nostalgia won't cut it in the new media landscape.

"Talk to us, Greg. Together, we know the new media landscape better than anyone and want Fairfax Media to be a thriving, diversified company that values quality journalism."
