Media Ownership: Truth, Bias and Our Democracy
24 November 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm
WED 24 NOVEMBER 2021, 7.30-8.45PM | ONLINEAustralia’s media ownership is among the most concentrated in the world, with just a handful of major publishers controlling the news that we read, watch and hear. Critics, including former prime ministers from both major parties, say this undermines our democracy by entrenching bias and giving a single company too much power over public opinion. Join former Media Watch host Jonathan Holmes, AAP news wire boss Emma Cowdroy and independent publisher and former News Corp deputy editor Peter Fray for an inside look at the modern Australian media landscape. The conversation will be moderated by Lane Cove’s own Walkley Award winning journalist Alan Sunderland and will be our last for 2021.
