Abstract

We look at trial by media focusing on five high profile sexual harassment cases reported on in 2011: David Jones, Clayton Utz, Rivers, IBM and Patrick Stevedores. We analyse the reporting to see how the media writes about sexual harassment and who is seen as the credible complainant.

Keywords: Australian Media Portrayal, Sexual Harassment, Credibility of Targets

JEL Classification: K10
