Democracy is under threat from the lack of media diversity in Australia

A strong democracy is based on a well-informed public, however the media in Australia is currently dominated and manipulated by vested interests and the current government have grossly underfunded and attacked our ABC.

  • Reason supports the establishment of a Royal Commission to investigate threats to media diversity.
  • Reason supports the funding of strong and independent public broadcasters - the ABC and SBS, including restoration of historical funding levels.
  • Reason calls for the expansion of content development mandates for commercial television and streaming services.
