Journalism in the Face of a Disaster in Indonesia - BORGEN
On Sept. 28, a deadly tsunami, a series of earthquakes and soil liquefaction hit Indonesia’s Central Sulawesi province. Aside from the casualties, one of the worst results from the tsunami was the destruction of newspaper and tv stations. The journalism industry in the city of Palu took a hit in the aftermath of the tsunami, but a local Indonesian journalist named Yardin Hasan has created a start-up news agency to help heal the community. Although the tsunami was disastrous, journalism in the face of a disaster proves how powerful storytelling can be.
