53,000 stories: the impact of journalism in 2021

This year journalists at The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age won 50 awards for their journalism, uncovered corruption, saw Crown unfit to hold a casino licence in NSW, exposed the rise of right-wing extremism in Australia and resulted in an investigation into cowboy cosmetic surgeon Daniel Lanzer.

Our journalism made The Sydney Morning Herald the most read masthead in the country and The Age the second most read. The Age is the most read publication in Melbourne.

And thanks to podcast listeners, our podcasts were downloaded more than 10 million times.

In a post-truth era, when Facebook and fake news dominate, respected, quality journalism is more important than ever.

Today on Please Explain, executive editor Tory Maguire joins Nathanael Cooper to talk about the impact of our journalism.

Our supporters power our newsrooms and are critical for the sustainability of news coverage.
