Read the Room: Daniel Andrews vs. the media

The COVID-19 pandemic in Victoria has seen a really fascinating dynamic play out between Premier Daniel Andrews, journalists and the wider community.

Journalist Calla Wahlquist joins Read the Room's Madeline Hayman-Reber and Osman Faruqi to chat about her latest piece for The Guardian, which outlines what’s going on and what it means.
