A discussion about politics and the press

Politics and the Press

One of three public panel discussions at the State Library of Western Australia as part of our “Shining a light on the truth” program.

When it comes to our democracy, journalism has a vital role to play in interpreting policy and “keeping the bastards honest”. Hear from an editor, political journalists and a cartoonist about how they report on the corridors of power, from local councils to state governments and the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery.
