We do not replicate the behaviour of the Murdochs’ News Corp
- We stick to facts, and use evidence to back up our statements,
- We do not bully anyone. Bullying of journalists will not be tolerated.
- We do not stoke baseless conspiracy beliefs or theories.
- We do not vilify entire groups of people. There are hundreds of hard-working, professional journalists employed by News Corp. We do not blame workers for the actions of their bosses.
We have nothing to hide:
- Our campaign goal and strategies are not a secret: we are working to mobilise public pressure on parliament to call a royal commission into media diversity, with a goal of reducing Murdoch’s media monopoly.
- We follow donation disclosure laws to the letter.
- Contributions to our campaign are not tax deductible, because we’re lobbying parliaments.
- Our campaign supporters know how their contributions are being spent.
- We’re proud that our committee (like a board) includes representatives from Victorian Trades Hall Council and the office of our chair, Kevin Rudd.
To take on Murdoch, it’ll take all of us together:
- AFMRC recognises and honours the work of other groups and activists who’ve campaigned for media integrity and against Murdoch’s monopoly for decades, across the world.
- We value collaboration, partnership and many kinds of activism,
- AFMRC values the contributions of all supporters, whether that contribution is your time, your voice or your money,
- AFMRC knows that the people most impacted by Murdoch’s abuse of media power must be at the centre of the campaign for the Royal Commission; it’s their stories that must be heard as witness testimony at the royal commission.
