Ebook description:

In a world the place the primary casualty of battle is reality, journalism has turn out to be the brand new battleground. Peter Greste spent 20 years reporting from the entrance line on this planet’s most harmful nations earlier than making headlines himself following his personal incarceration in an Egyptian jail. Charged with threatening nationwide safety, and enduring a sham trial, solitary confinement and detention for 400 days, Greste himself turned a sufferer of the brand new world battle on journalism. Wars have at all times been about propaganda however at this time’s battles are more and more between concepts, and the media has turn out to be a part of the battlefield. Extremists have staked a spot in information dissemination with online postings, and journalists have moved from being witnesses to the battle to a way by which the battle is waged – which makes them a goal. Having lined conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, in addition to having hung out jail in Egypt, Greste is extraordinarily effectively positioned to explain in vivid element what impact this has on the character of reporting and the thoughts of the reporter. Based mostly on in depth interviews and analysis, Greste exhibits how this battle on journalism has unfold to the West, not simply within the murders on the French satirical journal Charlie Hebdo or the repressions of Putin’s Russia, however Australia’s metadata legal guidelines and Trump’s phony battle on ‘faux information’. On this brave, compelling, very important account Greste unpicks the extent to which trendy investigative journalism is below menace, and the fraught quest – and determined want – for reality within the age of terrorism
