Our news headlines are awash with scandals. Their salacious details are monetised by commercial news outlets, they send social media into a flurry, destroy reputations and provide global water cooler conversation.
But where do they start?
Uncovered: Mediatised Scandal is a series that takes you to the heart of the formation of scandals.
In this episode, host David Bonaddio chats to author Rod Tiffen about the George Pell scandal; the rise of fake news; and why a fragmented media means desperately breathing scandal into everything has become the new norm.
Editor's note: this program was produced and edited prior to Cardinal George Pell's release.
