Blak Bias

How have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities been portrayed in the media? The 2020 Black Lives Matter movement led to a global media reckoning but did we see a ripple of change in Australia’s media?

In a 6-part podcast series ‘Blak Bias’, Torres Strait Islander journalist Rhianna Patrick and Gomeroi journalist Madeline Hayman-Reber spoke with Indigenous journalists, academics, and community members about how the media have covered issues around land rights, public health, race, and racism.

Listen to the extended podcast edition of Blak Bias on the Fourth Estate Podcast.

 The Blak Bias podcast has been created with the support of, the University of Technology Sydney, 2SER, and the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas.
