Is objectivity ‘colonial’? Amy McQuire argues Black, activist journalism must compensate for our mainstream media’s blindness

If you are anything like me, an older white man in a position of privilege, you probably have heard of the first name.

Key Points: 
  • If you are anything like me, an older white man in a position of privilege, you probably have heard of the first name.
  • Mulrunji Doomadgee died in a Palm Island police cell in 2004 after an altercation with a police officer, Chris Hurley.
  • Black Witness: The Power of Indigenous Media – Amy McQuire (UQP) The other names I had not heard of.
  • McQuire rejects outright journalistic norms espoused by the mainstream media, such as objectivity, which she believes are “colonial”.
  • Quoting Aileen Moreton-Robinson, McQuire says this is why it is imperative that First Nations people take control of their representation.

‘I’m not going to bullshit you’

  • Alongside the Canberra press gallery were the hosts of breakfast television programs, signalling the seriousness of the news event.
  • They wanted to ask why rates of Aboriginal child removal were rapidly increasing.
  • McQuire was in Canberra too, interviewing the grandmothers for a story about their Freedom Summit sit-in.
  • McQuire reports that he told them: I’m not going to bullshit you.

The Palm Island uprising

  • The second example concerns the events following Mulrunji Doomadgee’s death in 2004, which are usually referred to as the Palm Island riots but which McQuire calls the Palm Island uprising.
  • To McQuire, most coverage of what happened in Palm Island exemplified the phenomenon of white witnesses becoming war correspondents in their own land.
  • McQuire acknowledges The Tall Man is a sympathetic account of a family and community seeking justice for Doomadgee, but argues Hooper portrays the uprising from a perspective of “white fear”.

Exposing and righting injustices

  • She is less interested in evoking a range of experience, as, say Debra Dank does in her 2022 memoir, We Come With This Place, than in exposing and righting injustices.
  • Throughout the next 29 years, he proclaimed his innocence.
  • After interviewing Martin Hodgson, a human rights lawyer specialising in wrongful conviction cases, McQuire teamed up with him to re-investigate Henry’s case.
  • Police alleged Henry would have trudged through the river’s mud with the body, but no mud was found on his clothes.

Anger ‘the best sustenance’ for writing

  • The police said she was being drunk in a public place and took her to the watchhouse in Maitland.
  • A coronial inquest ruled police failed to properly search her, over ungrounded concerns she had HIV.
  • According to McQuire, anger is “the best sustenance with which to write”.
  • She does not qualify the statement just as she is adamant that orthodox notions of objectivity in journalism are “colonial”.
