Trial by Media

Cornelia Wyngaarden

1983, 45:00 minutes, colour, English

TAPECODE 005.01

This tape has been produced as a political action. It has taken off-air broadcast news stories surrounding the arrest of 5 people connected to direct action known as the Squamish 5 and subsequently the Vancouver 5. By re-editing the newscast, it shows how damaging police manipulation of the media can be to obtaining a fair trial in Canada. It attempts to show how the press co-operates with the police in protection of their priviledged status, expecially motivated illegal acts.
