'Total whitewash': experts respond to ACA's Nauru investigation

The episode was presented without the usual heavy editorialising. But many were left unimpressed.

Last night’s A Current Affair special on the Nauru detention centre wasn’t as bad as it could have been, those with experience of Australia’s detention regime in the island nation told Crikey this morning. But they deemed it a superficial report of the situation, which didn’t do enough to challenge the claims of the Nauruan government.

Channel Nine’s A Current Affair shocked the nation’s journalists last week by becoming only the second media team, and the first TV station, to be granted access to Nauru — which houses hundreds of asylum seekers and refugees intercepted on their way to Australia — in the past few years.

    Just more opinion masquerading as news – from a conservative cyclopedic troll masquerading as a journalist?

    All it needs is for a Nauru refugee to start a diet scam and ACA will have struck gold.

    “Caroline Marcus”? The one-eyed myopic conservative hack with her own column in our Limited News Sunday Mail?
    Another Limited News Party PR job.
