Reporting Human Trafficking – can sensitivity and accuracy outsell sensationalism?

On the 3rd March 2011, an audience gathered at the Bioscope on Fox Street in Johannesburg for the first exclusive airing of the radio documentary “Human Trafficking and Child Protection: Is the Media telling the right(s) story”.

We’ve compiled a collection of the most thought provoking moments from the discussion that followed.

The World Cup and Trafficking – fears, hype & fatigue!

“It is a crisis, it just wasn’t a crisis according to how we as journalists expected it to be. It’s an indictment, it’s a problem with journalists that we follow the pack, and we follow certain stories that are in the news and when it’s out of the news it dies.”
-      Khadija Magardi, Senior Journalist

“Do I think we acted responsibly? Absolutely. Do I think the NGOs acted responsibly? No. I think there was a lot of fear mongering before the world cup”
-      Kevin Ritchie, Editor, Saturday Star

These are some of the insights uncovered by child journalists Khumo Baduza and Khotso Zhile in their documentary, for Media Monitoring Africa’s “Child Protection and Trafficking: Is the Media Telling the Right(s) Story”
