Sarah Hanson-Young 26 Jul 2019

The Greens will consider the Digital Platforms Inquiry report and its 23 recommendations handed down today from the ACCC.

 

“Social media and digital platforms have fundamentally changed the way that we receive and consume news and information. Australia’s hyper-concentrated traditional media environment is not helped by this concentrated digital environment, with too much power amassing in the hands of just a few key players,” said Senator Hanson-Young, spokesperson for media and communications

 

“Big corporate media giants have been getting away with too much for too long.

 

“Last election the Greens developed a comprehensive strengthening media diversity policy, which called for a Productivity Commission Inquiry into the role and strength of our regulatory bodies.

 

“This is an important report and we will consider and consult the on the recommendations thoroughly.”
