Pull Quotes Podcast
The federal budget included some items for Canadian journalism: $50 million over five years for independent NGOs to to “support local journalism in underserved communities,” and the potential for news organizations to get charitable status. But there are still a lot of questions about how this will actually work. We chat with H.G. Watson, managing editor at J-Source.
Plus, a judge dismissed the charge against a man who yelled “F**k her right in the p***y” at reporter Heather Gillis. Now she’s worried this will only happen to more of her colleagues. Attacks and online harassment are a fact of life for many women in journalism; Jacob Dubé, discusses his deep dive into the issue  for the Ryerson Review magazine.
Guests:
H.G. Watson, managing editor at J-Source
Heather Gillis, municipal affairs reporter for NTV News in St. John’s
Jacob Dubé, Ryerson Review of Journalism production editor
