Attended part of the ‘Cultural Diversity and News in Australia Symposium’ via Deakin University today where I met up with the brilliant @santigrams ⭐️
At a panel deliberating the skewed representation of multicultural communities in mainstream media, matters of accountability, diverse writers, diverse editors and balanced journalism were addressed . Though this issue has been raised for years, there is increasing research demonstrating causal factors between media bias, public perception and political rhetoric- each of which feed each other at the expense of community wellbeing.
Further, culpability for providing platforms for bigoted views contributing to right wing violence, was tabled as part of this country’s ongoing problem with racism.
