Channel 4: Brutal and shocking, but not journalism – Sunday Times UK

logo-sectionThe Channel 4 programme “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields” mixes a large collection of samizdat amateur footage from mobile phones and video cameras - mostly un-attributed and uncorroborated, with comment from unnamed sources with  distorted voices and shadowed faces. And human rights lawyers. It was brutal, it was shocking, but it wasn't journalism”, states the UK’s Sunday Times journalist and TV Critic, AA Giles, in a critical comment on the programme.
