Australia’s leading newspapers and media organisations banded
together this week to take a stand for press freedom.
Australian, Herald Sun, The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, and The Guardian all
blacked out their front covers and websites on Monday morning, as part
of the Australia’s Right to Know campaign.
The ABC, SBS, News Corp, Nine, and the Media, Entertainment
and Arts Alliance are also among the organisations taking part.
As quoted in The Daily Telegraph, ‘Every day the Australian Government makes decisions about what is in the public interest – stopping reporters from letting you know what is happening in our country.’
