10 Minutes With Journlaw: Mark Pearson interviews RSF correspondent Bob Howarth

Howarth is a veteran newspaper reporter, editor and manager who has worked throughout the Australia-Asia-Pacific region for more than four decades.

He is Reporters Without Borders (RSF) correspondent for Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands.

In this interview we talk about media freedom issues in the region.

(10 mins, recorded 6 March 2014).

[See a summary of my speech to last October’s journalism congress in Timor Leste in my earlier post].

Read Lindsay Murdoch’s March 5 story in The Age about the state of media freedom in East Timor here.

Disclaimer: While I write about media law and ethics, nothing here should be construed as legal advice. I am an academic, not a lawyer. My only advice is that you consult a lawyer before taking any legal risks.
