The American public, though, has largely forgotten this. The war in Afghanistan has been running for 18 years, making it the longest conflict in American history (it passed the previous milestone, set by the Vietnam War, in February 2019). Over the years, press coverage has fallen dramatically. According to the Pew Research Center for #Journalism and the #Media, Afghanistan accounted for 1% of all media coverage in the US in 2007 and just under 4% in 2010, when the Pentagon deployed 100,000 troops and dropped 5,101 bombs on the country. Today, the level of coverage is insignificant: Pew no longer even tracks it as a topic.

How the New York Times verified the Iran missile-strike footage - Columbia Journalism Review

We had already been collecting a lot of videos. We had mapped out where the plane came down, where the debris was, all on Google Earth. We had a flight path, its altitude, and all the rest of it from FlightRadar24. We were mapping out potential missile-launch sites in the area.

For the geolocation: in the video, you can see a person standing beside what looks like a small cabin. And there’s a little metal tower with sort of cross sections, almost like a ladder, with a light on top. It looks like a security light illuminating the area. And there’s very distinctive rows of buildings that are all identical in the distance. It was the shadow from that lamp post that gave it away. You couldn’t see the lamp post in the satellite imagery, but you could see the shadow right beside that small cabin, and the buildings in the distance. So, we were able to very quickly verify that that video was taken there in Parand. And we are able to identify the corner o

“Investigative journalism in danger
Australia has good public media but the concentration of media ownership is one of the highest in the world. It became even more concentrated in July 2018, when Nine Entertainment took over the Fairfax media group. Mainly concerned with business efficiencies and cost-cutting, this new entity resembles Australia’s other media giant, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. Under the very conservative prime minister, Scott Morrison, the government has abandoned any attempt to regulate the media market. The space left for demanding investigative journalism has also been reduced by the fact that independent investigative reporters and whistleblowers face draconian legislation. Australia adopted one of the toughest defamation laws of the world’s liberal democracies in 2018, while its laws on terrorism and national security make covering these issues almost impossible. At the same time, the migrant detention centres run by government contractors on the islands of Manus and Nauru are in practice inaccessible to journalists and have be... Show more...

"Freedom is usually eroded gradually.
"It might happen over years, even decades.
"Its loss is not necessarily felt day by day, but we will certainly know when it's gone."


~ Kerrry O'Brien at the Walkley Awards

"O'Brien also called for the Government to bring WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange back to Australia.

"The Walkley Foundation presented WikiLeaks, with Assange is its editor, an award for its outstanding contribution to journalism in 2011.

"As we sit here tonight, Julian Assange is mouldering in a British prison awaiting extradition to the United States, where he may pay for their severe embarrassment with a life in prison," O'Brien said.

"This Government could demonstrate its commitment to a free press by using its significant influence with its closest ally to gain his return to Australia."

"After almost a decade of smear, mainstream media outlets like The Guardian and Fairfax are getting nervous, now that they understand what is happening to Assange can happen to them" from an edited version of an address John Pilger gave at the launch in London of "In Defense of Julian Assange, an anthology published by Or Books, New York.
