Media Uncovered

Media Uncovered is a SOAS RADIO series examining global media and its blind spots. Each episode highlights a story undereported by the mainstream media and asks two simple questions: First, what’s the story here? And second, why aren’t we hearing more about it?

This episode, with my co-host Chris Wood, we look at media depictions - inside and outside Japan – of the Tohoku earthquake and its aftermath. What do they tell us about the media themselves, the culture that creates them, and the culture they create?

Welcome to Media Uncovered, a SOAS RADIO series examining global media and its blind spots. Each episode we highlight a story undereported by the mainstream media and ask two simple questions: First, what’s the story here? And second, why aren’t we hearing more about it? This week, we talk about the coverage (or lack thereof) of the protests taking place in cities throughout Iraq, culminating in February 25th’s “Day of Rage.”
