Sky News host Rita Panahi says there has been a rise in citizen journalists during the pandemic because much of the mainstream media has “failed so abysmally to cover what is really happening”.

Ms Panahi said the ABC, SBS and The Age have come together to “bash” independent journalist Rukshan Fernando “who is doing a better job than they are”.

“Maybe he is attracting millions of views because he is showing what is really happening and allowing people to explain why they’re so upset rather than just demonising any anti-government dissent as some anti-vaxxer, neo-Nazi-inspired conspiracy,” she said.
