The media is dependent on people being willing to share their stories. Without the voices of victims of abuses of power, public-interest journalism would be flat, limited to data points to show the human cost, unable to engender empathy. But asking people who have experienced trauma, are from marginalized communities or otherwise ill-equipped to handle media scrutiny, to tell us their story in all its “colour” can also be retraumatising and extractive.
