Media monopoly and political power

A Socialist Alliance and Resistance meeting

While Gina Rinehart is only one of several corporate media owners, her move on Fairfax raises again the question of Australia’s monopolised media.

What attitude should the 99% take to the media? How can democratic control over the media coexist with a “free press”? Is the corporate media all powerful? What about the ABC and SBS? What media do activists need?

These questions and more will be discussed at the next Socialist Alliance and Resistance meeting
