Australia’s independent media versus nuclear propaganda – theme for January 2018

Australians don’t need to worry about corporations controlling what we can see or hear on the Internet.  Well, not yet, anyway.

Overseas, governments in totalitarian countries, Russia, China, do control the media, even including the Internet to a large extent.

But now, in a democracy – the United States of America, comes the first move to control the Internet.   Donald Trump’s Republican-dominated Federal Communications Commission (the US equivalent to the Australian Communications and Media Authority)   has just voted to end the 2015 Open Internet Order which protects net neutrality.

Australia’s mainstream media is already largely controlled by the Murdochracy, anyway. From the point of view of nuclear information, there’s a strong government influence, as we see in the handouts from Australian Nuclear Science and Technology, religiously regurgitated by the South Australian media.

For nuclear information Australians do depend on independent media, and on a few brave investigative journalists, like the ABC’s Mark Willacy.

I think that, in 2018, all of us who care about our country, and especially about the nuclear threats, will need to foster, support, and follow, the independent media that we still do have, and the social media outlets that spread the information that the nuclear lobby does not want us to know.
