Event description
Join comedian Tim Batt as he interrogates a panel of distinguished journalists on the state of our media landscape.

About this Event

We are extremely excited to bring you this very special event hosted by Comedian Tim Batt with an amazing line up of speakers. This is an event not to be missed!

Fake news, bad algorithms, pay walls, and polarising politicians - the state of journalism today is fraught with twenty-first century challenges and opportunities. Join comedian Tim Batt who will interrogate journalists who usually do the interrogating for us! 

Tim will be joined by former broadcaster and current Head of Video/Audio & Content Partnerships at Stuff, Carol Hirschfeld (Ngāti Porou, Rongowhakaata); producer of RNZ's Mediawatch and contributing writer at The Spinoff, Hayden Donnell; investigative reporter for NZ Herald and now senior writer at Stuff, Kirsty Johnston and editor of Ātea, The Spinoff's Māori and indigenous content channel Leonie Hayden (Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara, Ngāti Rango).

Our panel talk is free and open to all, but bookings are required.

This event is part of Gus Fisher Gallery's new exhibition, The Medium is the Message: Television Now and Then, commemorating sixty years of television in Aotearoa.
