Best step forward: The complexities of covering race-based issues in the media

Race-based issues are evolving and, unfortunately, the media’s coverage of them isn’t. Gone are the days where acts of discrimination are solely blatant and intentional.

Trigger warnings are often referred to as "#tw" on blogs

Canadian journalism face-to-face with conflict of interest issues

Canadian journalism has become a strange place: sex scandals, secret businesses and Kevin O’Leary becoming the less controversial half of the former show Lang and O’Leary Exchange. After the disturbing allegations against Jian Ghomeshi surfaced late last year, no one expected another journalist to outshine his scandals, and no one has. But some sure are creating scandals of their own. […]
