A baby missing in the outback. A mother convicted then exonerated for murder. A tragic episode of trial by media… Or was it? On the 40th anniversary of Azaria Chamberlain’s disappearance, Belinda Middleweek investigates the media’s role in this landmark event. Drawing on interviews with journalists, analysis of television, radio and newspaper archives, as well as never-before published activist pamphlets and newsletters, this book situates the Chamberlain case in contemporary media debates about #Megxit, trolling, Insta-celebrity and hashtag activism. Feral media? You be the judge.
