A 2023 report by the Australian Media Landscape reveals the fears and threats that surround journalists in Australia today.

The survey of more than 1000 journalists showed that 98% of respondents felt that public interest journalism had been threatened in 2022, due to factors including disinformation, strict defamation laws and a lack of resources.

Nearly half of the journalists surveyed stated that they encountered some form of abuse or harassment due to their work.

The Wire’s Nicholas Powell spoke with Managing Director of Medianet, Amrita Sidhu about these issues.
