    2020 hindsight: The coverage of COVID-19 | The Listening Post

    2020 hindsight: The coverage of COVID-19 | The Listening Post

    In 14 years of The Listening Post, there has never been a story like the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The number of people infected, the number of countries affected, and the amount of coverage the story attracted - all were unprecedented. We led with coverage of the pandemic for 12 straight weeks. We have never come close to that with any other story.

    On this special edition of our programme, we look back at how the pandemic story grew - moving from country to country, and exposing the failings of various governments and their leaders. So many societal issues have been raised in the process, ranging from public health to personal privacy.

    You will also see how our programme had to adapt to life under lockdown - and the way journalists everywhere did - to stay safe.

    With the first of the vaccines just being rolled out and so many countries feeling the effects of a second wave, the pandemic remains the biggest news story on the planet.  Prepare for more cases, more coverage and more examination of the way the COVID-19 is reported, here at The Listening Post.

    Ten years after the Arab Spring | The Listening Post

    Ten years after the Arab Spring | The Listening Post

    The wave of revolutions that came to be known as the Arab Spring began a decade ago - in December of 2010.

    Arabs mobilised in their millions in collective calls for democracy, justice and freedom of expression. Governments fell. Autocrats - names like Mubarak, Gaddafi, Ben Ali - went with them.

    In one country after another, Arabs were tasting freedom of expression for the first time. Voices that had been ignored or silenced were finally telling their own stories, driving their own revolutions.

    In this special edition of The Listening Post, we take a retrospective look at what happened in the halcyon days of the Arab uprisings. And we discuss the subsequent crushing of democratic movements; the clampdowns on freedom of the press that remain in place today.

    We have chosen to focus on the stories of three countries: Tunisia, where the movement got its start; Egypt, where it appeared to reach its height; and Syria, where it hit a brick wall.
