Simon Chapman joins us from the Bristol branch of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) to tell us about a screening and discussion the union is organising at the Cube Cinema at 7:30pm on Fri 21 November.
Simon also discusses the redundancy of local staff reporters, press regulation and the owners of the Bristol Evening Post ‘Local World’, who are they?
One Rogue Reporter is the story of Rich Peppiatt, a tabloid hack who snaps over his red top paper’s fixation with sensationalism over truth. When the phone hacking scandal engulfs Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World, Rich decides to use the skills he’s honed on Fleet Street to turn the tables on the press barons peddling sex, lies and scaremongering under the cloak of journalism. The result is a hilarious documentary: part exposé, part comedy, part cri de coeur against unaccountable press power. Read More…
