News Goo Episode 1

TMS PEACE JOURNALISM, 28 Mar 2011

Jake Lynch – TRANSCEND Media Service

In the launch edition of News Goo, Jake Lynch interviews Julian Burnside QC, and the journalist, author and film-maker John Pilger, about the investigative journalism of WikiLeaks. They ask why Australia’s media have been so slow to follow up on important leads from the WikiLeaks disclosures, like the unmasking of Senator Mark Arbib as a US “protected source”.

Jake Lynch is an advisor to TMS, being its Peace Journalist. He left his former TV career at the BBC and Sky News to become Associate Professor of Peace Journalism and Director of the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney. He is also a member of the Executive Committee of the Sydney Peace Foundation, which staged the Wikileaks event in Sydney Town Hall on Wednesday, March 16th 2011 [Posted on TMS last week http://www.transcend.org/tms/2011/03/breaking-australias-silence-wikileaks-and-freedom/].

    this is an extremely interesting programme dear Mr. Lynch.
    Will there be more episodes? And why dont you show the video here right away? The way it is right now doesn’t relly do justice to the quality of the programme.
