Ep. 101: How Canadian Media Put Indigenous Victims on Trial

MEDIA INDIGENA : Weekly Indigenous current affairs program

This week: Toodle-loo Wahoo! The majorly racist logo of a major league baseball team is knocked out of the park in Cleveland… sort of. Turfed by Trudeau: The PM’s cross country road show gets awkward when so-called ‘hecklers’ are shown the heck out. Media victim-blaming: Recent headlines about a 15-year old girl seem to put her on trial as much as her accused killer.

Joining host Rick Harp this week are Kim TallBear, associate professor of Native Studies at the University of Alberta, and Candis Callison, associate professor at UBC’s Graduate School of Journalism.
