Might be time for journalists to relearn principles of Rule of Law!

Last year, Australian Media Engagement Project (AMEP) engaged in a number of events around, “Beyond the Game – Is there a crisis in Australian democracy?” We believe there is a crisis, and that crisis affects, and will continue to affect, the fairness, well being and shared prosperity of Australian society. Others might disagree!

Therefore, we think it might be time for stronger public discourse on the principles of the Rule of Law. For this to happen we need a critical mass of independent journalists to report on the debate.

About Bob Simpson

Bob is project manager of The Australian Media Engagement Project (AMEP). He believes that ethical and independent journalists are vital to the continuing freedom of Australian citizens. You could argue that In recent decades media organisations have subtly subverted journalism to their own private commercial interests, and away from an integrated sense of fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australian society, especially for the disempowered. AMEP aims to change general media narratives towards greater fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australia.
