Mediawatch: ‘Groundswell’ exposes rural / urban divide in media – 25/07/21 and media bias

01/08/2021

Interesting piece for a number of reasons

At the biggest national protest for years last week, farmers made it clear they are unhappy with the government and they feel unloved by the country – and the media.

The item was reasonably fair, but at the end of the day I think the item tilted away from the farmers and more towards the government line, especially with remarks on food pricing which took no account of GST, exchange rates, and the supermarket duopoly .
