Journalism: I'll race you to the bottom

Jan
14

It’s always baffled me. From the recent exposé of Victorian-like conditions at Sports Direct to exploited fruit pickers in Chartham, journalism has long been a champion of highlighting injustice — and quite rightly so. But when it comes to the treatment of its own workforce, the motherly embrace reporters often display for those at the bottom can seem a world away.

Covering Corbyn's reshuffling of the pack

Jan
07

 

As we immersed ourselves back into the news cycle after the holiday period, those of us in Britain found a rather busy domestic agenda somewhat captured by Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow cabinet reshuffle. 

Now anybody who has had even the most fleeting of acquaintance with me knows that I am, frankly, a shameless politico, and as a result found what has been dubbed humorously “the night(s) of the blunt knives” fascinating.

Fantastic first radio newsday for undergrads

Dec
17

Have a listen to our first year undergrad's newsday!! Putting together 30 mins of live radio is no easy task, and even more so when you've only been studying how to do it for less than 6 months. 

Nevertheless, our almost 40 strong class took on the mammoth task brilliantly and delivered two impressive shows full of national, local and international stories. If this is how they start, we cannot wait to see what they'll be up to in a couple of years time. 

Enjoy!
