The coronavirus and the western-centric bias in reporting

Friday, 10 April 2020 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Jacques and Jennifer talk about the coronavirus pandemic and the western bias in the way it’s being reported. They look at the devastating effects of disease introduced by Europeans on Aboriginal people in Australia and on First Nation people elsewhere.  Why is no one talking about this?  They also discuss the anti-Chinese bias in media reporting of the coronavirus, and the excesses of capitalism on all sides.

Friday 10:00am to 10:30am
Think Again offers weekly conversations and reflections about current events, trends and public pronouncements on contemporary and emerging issues. The show moves beyond what we read and hear via the public and ‘social’ media, to invite alternative possibilities to guide our thinking, living and organising.
