If you read about AMEP on our website you’ll see we wish to change Australian media ethics, values and agendas, therefore media narratives, to encourage unity, harmony, fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australian society, particularly for those without a voice.
To move in this direction on solid ground it’s important we clearly consider the values generally accepted among Australians, whatever their heritage. The link is to a publication by the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship.
When I read these values, I wonder if this is the same Australia described in Australian media. I suspect it is and the description in the mainstream and social media is substantially untrue. if my assertion is correct, does this mean that most journalists are betraying the MEAA Code of Ethics?
What do you think?
