At our event with Jonathan Holmes, someone raised concern about AMEP trying to attract journalists to become actors in our cause.
In response, we will probably have to say this over and over, again!
Australian Media Engagement Project (AMEP) encourages journalists to be independent, under their MEAA Code of Ethics. We want to see more and more journalists tackling big contentious and complex issues through the lens of fairness, honesty and independence.
In no way, do we want journalists to be propagandists for our cause! We want to engage with them, learn from them, and enjoy their company! But never propagandists for our cause! Australian society needs their independence and MEAA ethics.
But we will always work to achieve our goal, which is to help change Australian media narratives to encourage growing fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australian society; particularly for those without a voice!
