Annabel Crabb talks to a panel of insiders about the fraught and sensitive relationship between politicians and the press. How do journalists ensure accurate reporting while cultivating sources? How do they navigate porous concepts like ‘on background’ and ‘off the record’? And how symbiotic is the relationship between politicians wanting airtime and reporters looking for a sound bite? Featuring 2018 Walkley Award winner Sharri Markson, veteran political reporter Samantha Maiden and The Australian columnist and Road to Ruin author Niki Savva.
