    Activism or accuracy — As climate change disrupts the planet, should it upend journalism as well?

    Activism or accuracy — As climate change disrupts the planet, should it upend journalism as well?

    In 2021, News Corp’s tabloids in Australia made a stunning announcement.

    For the month leading up to the Glasgow climate summit, they would be running a nationwide campaign on how to tackle climate change.

    Cries of hypocrisy rang out from pundits all over — including News Corps’ own — for this seeming about-face on the white-hot issue.

    So, was it a flash in the pan, or was it a turning point in climate change reporting of the most influential papers in Australia, from one of the biggest publishers in the world?

    And what does it matter anyway when you’re reporting from Polynesia, where you’ve been telling the story for decades, as international media fly in, tell you that your island is sinking, and then fly out?

    Look closely and you’ll notice journalists are finding new ways to tell the defining story of our time — even as the water is lapping at their door.

    In this episode of Journo, Nick Bryant talks sinking islands, columnists in denial and "patronising the messenger" with guests Ben English, editor of The Daily Telegraph in Sydney, Lagipoiva Cherelle Jackson, Editor of Pacific Environment Weekly and Andrew McCormick, Deputy Director of Covering Climate Now.

    From TikTok to Telegram — What is the war in Ukraine teaching journalists?

    From TikTok to Telegram — What is the war in Ukraine teaching journalists?

    “I always say in journalism that everything has changed and nothing has changed," says BBC foreign correspondent Lyse Doucet, who reported from Ukraine's capital Kyiv as Russian tanks rolled into the country.

    The war in Ukraine shows us that history never ends, and journalists are taking extraordinary risks in composing the first draft.

    A key battle in this conflict is playing out online, with misinformation, disinformation, and propaganda rife, as both sides take to their phones to share their experiences of the war.

    So how are newsrooms countering the flood of misinformation, while also using new platforms like TikTok and Telegram in their own reporting? And where does old-fashioned eye-witness reportage fit into it all?

    In the first episode of Season 2 of Journo, host Nick Bryant asks what lessons we are learning from the kind of conflict we hoped had been banished to the past.

    Journo is back

    Journo is back

    For the journalists writing the first records of history, this past year has been one for the ages.

    In season 2 of Journo, foreign correspondents are pulling on their flak jackets and scouring new platforms like TikTok and Telegram to report on the war in Ukraine — and local reporters are taking huge risks to stay in their homes and bear witness to the atrocities of war.

    It’s time to unpack the tactics used to get politicians off script in the Australian federal election.

    We'll dive deep into the craft of investigative journalism and look at the geopolitical events that have forced back page sports reporters to become front-page players in international reporting.
