This is a radio interview I did with On The Media (22 November, 2014).
While maintaining the civility and fairness that are the hallmarks of public radio, OTM tackles sticky issues with a frankness and transparency that has built trust with listeners and led to more than a tripling of its audience in five years.
Since OTM was re-launched in 2001, it has been one of NPR’s fastest growing programs, heard on more than 300 public radio stations.
Rehtaeh Parsons’s name became synonymous in Canada with online sexual cyber-bullying after her suicide following two years of torment. But now, saying her name is illegal in that country, thanks to a law that protects victims of child pornography that kicked in after her tormentors were charged for taking and passing around her photo. Bob speaks with Rehtaeh’s father, Glen Canning.
