Media ethics over Roastbusters, US information shutdown

From Nine To Noon, 11:44 am on 29 January 2019

Media commentator Gavin Ellis examines the ethical decisions that confronted the media over the Jami-Lee Ross, Sarah Dowie text exchange inquiry, and also the reportage surrounding an interview with one of the 'Roastbuster's' ringleaders. Plus how information in the US is being curbed with the virtual disappearance of White House briefings and restrictions on Freedom of Information Act access.
