MEAA Federal President Marcus Strom on regional closures
MEAA Federal President Marcus Strom speaking to the TODAY show this week, in part, about the June closure of regional newspapers in Queensland. He describes how the loss of community voice not only has a negative affect on community cohesion but also undermines our democracy.
TODAY seems to be running with the Murdoch line that these closures were the result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile the MEAA is running a campaign urging MPs to step in and support the regional communities they serve and help restore local coverage.
