Australia’s TV networks are refusing to put GetUp members’ ad critical of News Corp’s biased election coverage on the air. Channel 7 refused outright on the grounds that it was ‘distasteful’, while Channel Ten and Channel Nine have told GetUp directly that they won’t continue running the ad because it criticises Rupert Murdoch. They’re giving Murdoch a free pass while censoring our free speech. It’s already been seen by more than 200,000 Australians online, so like and share this to keep it growing.
