ABC’s Media Watch attempts to discredit Independent Journalists

Tax payer funded ABC Media Watch, a legacy mainstream media dinosaur, is the latest to be triggered by the work of independent journalists in Australia. They have accused me (and others) of not providing balance and context. Their major gripe seems to be with independent journalists sharing non-stop unedited livestream reports (sometimes for hours), with the cardinal sin of allowing people at the centre of these moments a platform to speak.

It would appear that MSM would rather viewers watch a heavily edited 30 second snippet with their version of “balance & context” on the nightly news, allowing only them the ability to fully control the narrative with selective editing.

In my opinion, the media diversity that independent journalists provide is crucial to ensuring viewers have access to multiple perspectives. This in turn provides balance when they view other sources of information and news. Although some of my work cannot always provide the entire context, it goes much further than showing snippets on the news interjected with the opinions of experts and authorities that did not even witness the events first hand.

These types of lame attacks only provide further confirmation to me that that I’m on the right path.

  1. That's that clown from ABC's Media Watch, Shari Marksen from Syk News made him look like a goose about the origins of COVID, then again look at his record, he is pretty much wrong on everything. That's why he works for the abc, no reputable media organisation would give this idiot a job.

  2. The ABC along with Chanel 7,9,and 10, hang your heads in shame, you have become the fake news and propaganda Chanels of the country, media watch used to have some integrity but not anymore

  3. Media Watch is an embarrassment . They are fooling themselves thinking that they are relevant and that people even care about their propaganda.
