Is good taste passe and good design old hat?"--ABC-TV Lateline program guide.

War of words ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examines the question of journalistic integrity and independence in war reporting. Having learnt from the disastrous effects of media coverage of the Vietnam War in the Sixties and Seventies, Western armed alliances nowadays seek to carefully manage media coverage of military operations. The Gulf War with its 'coralling' of journalists in press conferences set the scene which has been repeated in the 1998-1999 NATO bombings of Iraq and Kosovo. NATO atrocities against Kosovan civilians are considered with regard to NATO's efforts to conceal the truth from 'their' journalists, and the principle of journalistic freedom in war reporting is considered more broadly.

New birth centre prompts debate ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The argument over whether childbirth should be made a medical or natural experience for parents and babies has been reborn. This time, the debate surrounds a new style of birth centre run entirely by midwives and presented as a more nurturing, less intrusive experience for both mother and child. But the new childbirth model established in NSW, which excludes doctors from the birthing suite altogether, is also being condemned by many of those doctors as an ill-conceived experiment, putting at risk the lives of babies and their mothers. Midwives counter that such alarmist warnings from doctors are motivated by professional snobbery and that the service only caters for women considered likely to give birth naturally without the need for medical intervention. Nick Grimm reports on a bruising public feud

Story 1: "A day after he finally announced his departure from politics, Peter Costello was still reflecting on what might have been." Story 2: "The use of chemotherapy drugs is a common way of trying to kill cancer cells in the body. The drugs are expensive but they are subsidised. However, the Federal Government believes the way the drugs are prepared is wasteful and up to $35 million can be saved annually through a more efficient system of dispensing. The proposed changes have met bitter opposition from pharmacists and medical professionals, who describe the new system as unworkable and dangerous." Story 3: "Sir Ken Robinson, a leading thinker on education, creativity and innovation, who has advised various governments and major global corporations, says that most education systems around the world, including Australia's, are still modelled on the needs of the industrial age, are already narrow and are getting narrower."--ABC website
