A discussion about press freedom
Press freedom and investigative journalism
One of three public panel discussions at the State Library of Western Australia as part of our “Shining a light on the truth” program.
This year in Australia we’ve seen unprecedented attacks on journalists: from raids and digital surveillance to court suppression orders and pressure to reveal sources. Hear from an all-star panel of award-winning journalists about how important sources and whistleblowers are to investigative journalism; why this kind of reporting is critical to our democracy; and the risks journalists face in the current climate.
