Episode Five looks at the taboos in journalism, the stories that are not broadly told. Leading journalists Maxine McKew, Ray Martin, Andrew Rule and Brisbane's Tony Koch talk about the pressure on reporters to censor themselves when reporting on black violence in Aboriginal communities. Finally, we hear the stories of two journalists - one well known, one lesser known - who have struggled with the ethics of chequebook journalism.
