“The Australian Press Council is responsible for promoting good standards of media practice, community access to information of public interest, and freedom of expression through the media. The Council is the principal body with responsibility for responding to complaints about Australian newspapers, magazines and associated digital outlets.”
We think it could be a very important body for the protection of Australian people against abuse of political, media and ‘market’ power. Our concern is the influence major media organisations could have over the APC due to the funding arrangements by which APC exists. But we applaud its efforts.
