Three months after ‪#‎CharlieHebdo‬, Paris newsrooms are still under armed guard and threats against them have increased.
TV5 Monde's Director General Yves Bigot now has a panic button installed on his desk. If he hits this button, within one second, the facilities will go into lockdown. "If I have a warning from riot police outside, or surveillance people...I can press that button and shut all doors automatically, and the local police station is warned automatically if there is a threat in our venues."

Setting the record straight on 'trial by social media' and The Australian - the Murdoch broadsheet's campaign against me continues. #JillMeagher #Twitdef
The Australian sure knows how to maintain a vendetta. Indeed, Murdoch's national broadsheet is the originator of what I call 'vendetta journalism' in Australia. For abundant evidence, read Robert Mann...

Australian police confirm that Twitter has agreed to hand over users' data to all Australian law enforcement agencies investigating serious (i.e. where imminent risk exists, including self-harm) trolling cases - without a court order.

I held the same view initially, Crag. But then I tried to get information out of Twitter and met obfuscation & my interest was piqued. That's never a good strategy. I want more detail from Twitter about how and when they deal directly with international law enforcement/governments. The letter of the policies may not have changed (Twitter maintains it hasn't but I'm still waiting for answers to my questions about whether Twitter has previously handed over data to Australian investigations in serious trolling cases without a court order. And it would be negligent in reporting this issue not to ask about the implications of changes to the edges of policy.

There is a lack of clarity and transparency around what Twitter accepts as evidence of 'imminent risk'. For example, does incitement to self harm (e.g. #diecharlotte) constitute justification for handing over users' data to police without a court order if the targetted party threatens to suicide?

I'm not alone in being concerned about broader implications for Internet freedom & privacy regarding Twitter's data handover practices - international agencies & activists are mulling these issues too.

Similarly, I think there's an important debate to be had in Australia about political/government responses vis privacy/internet freedom, so coverage that highlights these issues is necessary (as opposed to tabloid fear-mongering).

All of the above notwithstanding, I think I was pretty clear in this article that the Daily Telegraph's coverage was hugely problematic - ditto the political response.

Cheers,

Jp

Hi everyone,

Final year University of Canberra (Australia) broadcast journalism students will present a radio program on 666 ABC Canberra this Sunday 1000-1200 called Reporting Refugees (tune in to 666 on the AM dial or you can listen live on the web here http://www.abc.net.au/canberra/?ref=nav where the show will also later be podcast alongside a host of multimedia journalism stemming from the project).

Students studying Advanced Broadcast Journalism have worked hard all semester with their tutors, in partnership with the ABC, Canberra Refugee Support and Our Say (http://oursay.org/reporting-refugees) on the Reporting Refugees project. It aims to be a conduit for experiential journalism education and research, an opportunity to hear the untold human stories of Canberra's refugees and asylum seekers and to challenge ill-informed, inflammatory journalism and politics on the complex issues at stake.

If you're a tweeter, why not listen in on Sunday morning and participate in the conversation using the #ReportingRefugees hashtag? The ABC will be monitoring and redistributing social media content produced by listeners, as will UC staff and students involved in the project (myself, Ginger Gorman & Phil Cullen).

If you'd like to know more about the project, here's some background

The My old ABC 'alma mater' reporting my views on the risks to freedom of expression posed by threats from Australian politicians to increase the policing of Twitter trolls. Evidently, my old colleagues 97.3 ABC Illawarra miss me - they have me both as a PhD student @ University of Wollongong (correct) and a UOW lecturer (I work for University of Canberra, of course) :)
