Australia's old mediaABC

Australia’s old media are on the ropes and are being exposed for bias and conflict of interest daily

Australia’s old media are now being exposed daily for their biased reporting and failure to declare their conflict of interests which has to mean their days are numbered.

The evidence for that statement and reasoning for writing this article is that I noticed that the last 3 videos I have published on YouTube are all about different topics but all raise media bias and media failings. I never did that deliberately but it is just that media bias can’t be avoided when writing about a lot of topics because they seem to be lying or pushing biased perspectives on so many stories and the new media are calling them out.

On the 13th of March, I published the below video titled “Robodebt’s Commissioner Catherine Holmes embarrasses old media by praising social media coverage”.

On the 14th of March, I published the below video titled “Bruce Lehrmann names Kangaroo Court of Australia and other independent media in his defamation claim”.

On the 15th of March, I published the below video titled “Nine’s paper editor, Tory Maguire, hides her conflict of interest in promoting War with China”.

As you can see in the above videos it’s not just me shining a light on old media’s failings. Robodebt Royal Commissioner Catherine Holmes made a special point to highlight how social media users on Twitter did a better job reporting the Robodebt Royal Commission than the old media.

Independent websites filled in a lot of the gaps in the reporting of the Bruce Lehrmann alleged rape. And it was the independent website True Crimes News Weekly that first named Lehrmann and if that hadn’t happened, we might still not know Lehrmann’s name, he might have never been charged and the cover-up attempt by politicians and police might not have been exposed.

And Nine Entertainment’s papers The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have copped criticism far and wide for running a propaganda campaign promoting war with China.

Add the daily reports of media bias in Australia to Rupert Murdoch’s lies being exposed in America via the Dominion defamation case against Murdoch’s Fox News and the only conclusion that one can come to is that the old media is going to fail and it’s only a matter of time.

  1. Biased reporting made Murdoch a billionaire. So I don’t see how you come to the conclusion that it’s days are numbered. He’s survived worse than what he’s going through now.

  2. Today’s media have abandonned the old journalistic skills, deliberately obscuring what is news and what are paid advertisements. Most daily newspapers have their favored column correspondents whose names are readily discovered after reading said columns for a while. One may as well talk to the Man-in-the Moon as bother to try to get a comment included. Even-handed political commentary has been abandonned.

  3. Older commenters might remember the old TV program Meet the Press where I think it was a panel of three editors from leading newspapers who grilled (and I mean grilled) any politician who faced them. Today, journos seem to want to get on pollies Xmas card list instead of finding out facts. No wonder so much corruption continues.

  4. Murdock is also under attack in America, so will be interesting to see how he likes being fried in his own propagandize orders. At the same time all the so called reporters, who work for any media are as much to blame as they have no back bone to stand up and tell the truth. It is time we all stopped watching all this bull dust that they report on, think we should find a way to get Shane his own T.V. show so we can get the real facts.

    • Fifty years ago the local provincial newspaper editor would contact locals about breaking items for comment before rushing off into print. Then a moderately well-known Darwin journalist took over and things changed. His opinion was that if someone said something that was all he needed to publish with the get out clause, “It was said….”, no further checks. Needless to say the good burghers stopped contacting this guy. Best of luck with that record.

  5. I share your optimism, Shane, but I think their demise will be later, rather than sooner. A diet of hard tack isn’t as appealing as lollies to some. Witness the Trump faithful, for instance. They just love hearing lies.

  6. Dear John C
    what on earth are You talking about re. the ex President Trump faithful?…They just love hearing lies?
    Please explain….
    Thank You in anticipation.

  7. There was not one line in last Saturday’s Courier Mail about the Robodebt Royal Commission. This is the day after Catherine Holmes concluded public hearings. It was as if this event had not occurred in this state’s capitol.
