Nigerian print and electronic media were beset by a revenue crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the context of structural adjustment of the country’s economy, the so-called Fourth Estate became a victim of its own success when its century-long visionary pursuit of democracy and social justice could no longer be sustained by old expectations based on circulation and advertisement. That apparent economic crisis was exacerbated by political problems arising from draconian military practices of rule, censorship, direct intimidation, and the corruption or cooptation of media ethics.

Language is legislation, speech is its code. We do not see the power which is in speech because we forget that all speech is a classification, and that all classifications are oppressive.

Recently, there has been an increase in mistrust regarding the political establishment. Forms of expressing this disconformity have been at the centre of public and academic discussion. Countercultures, as attempts to find an alternative to social conformity, are central to these expressions of dissent. Books like Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies: Online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right (2017) highlight the resurgence of youth subcultures in the last decade. Correspondingly, counterculture movements on both sides of the political divide have seen their numbers multiplied.

Special Issue on “Data Journalism - Practice, Problems and Pedagogy” (Volume 28, Issue 1, June 2018)
Guest Editor: Kayt Davies Head of the Journalism Program, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia
Data journalism is blazing new trails through the media landscape, tackling big issues, illuminating social patterns and exposing connections, but doing it requires skills additional to the usual journalistic canon.
How are journalists finding ways to interrogate and present data stories? How are educators rising to the challenge of teaching data journalism skills? This special issue of Asia Pacific Media Educator aims to document the new ideas and approaches being embraced by journalists and educators.
