Members Dinner with Nick McKenzie

Corruption, crime, power and politics... and the role of investigative journalism in a fake news world

Members Dinner with Nick McKenzie
23rd October 2017

With the introduction of social media and fake news, as well as the decline of print newspapers, what is the role of investigative journalism now? Nick is joining us to discuss these and other important questions.

Nick’s journalism history includes major exposés of corruption and the abuse of power in government and policing agencies, coupled with failings in the criminal justice system. He has also investigated corporate corruption, human rights abuses, the abuse of disabled Australians in care homes, abuse scandals in religious organisations, the exploitation of migrant workers, and doping and match fixing in sport. He reports on international affairs, national security and terrorism, immigration, organised crime, defence issues and federal and state politics.

Nick began his career as a cadet journalist at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, before joining the ABC investigative unit in 2003. He has won Australia’s highest journalism award, the Walkley award, seven times. Nick has broken some of Australia’s biggest stories and is the most decorated journalist in the history of the Melbourne Press Club. 

Nick works for Fairfax Media and his work appears regularly in Melbourne’s The Age newspaper, the Sydney Morning Herald and the Australian Financial Review. He also presents special investigations for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s prestigious Four Corners television program and the 7.30 program.
