Shutting Us Up
This event promises to be a controversial and revealing insight into the role of WA’s Corruption and Crime Commission and how its powers of secrecy can emasculate a free and open media.
If you thought that only politicians and lobbyists could be hauled before the CCC, think again. No-one is immune.
Join Secretary WA Branch MEAA Michael Sinclair-Jones, media law expert Carmel Galati (Edwards Wallace) and senior investigative journalist Gary Adshead (The West Australian) for an intriguing panel session. Hosted by Danielle Benda.
“Shutting Us Up!” will also outline practical steps for working journalists and PR people to use, to better protect themselves and their sources.
