/ The Informer / Media / Giving air miles to Chechen men, journos round table and AFL wrap-up


The Informer team introduces a brand new weekly segment where the country’s top journalists dissect big media issues and news.

We kicked off the first week with our segment regulars Alana Schetzer, Dean Arcuri, Shannon Power.

The team pulled about the coverage of Margaret Court’s latest homophobic comments. Were the mainstream media responsible for spreading her vitirol to a wider audience? And how can queer media make sure it’s inclusive of people of all backgrounds without being tokenistic?

Bess Hepworth, founder of Planet Ally, tells our listeners how they can donate their frequent flyer miles to help gay men flee from persecution in Chechnya.

And JOY’s Chicks Talking Footy team bring us their latest weekly AFL wrap-up.
