Is this a story about talented musicians being abused by the market?

This is an interesting read from the Conversation.

Our interest in media is about what makes for greater fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australian society?

If this research is true why would journalists from mainstream media not investigate market-driven entertainment? Are media organisations and entertainment entrepreneurs actually profiting at the cost of destroyed lives?

Why are independent journalists not writing about ‘the truth’? Not exposing ‘the lie’!

(See “The Power of the Powerless” by Vaclav Havel, October, 1978)


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.
