The news and media industry has serious issues it needs to rectify !

Used to be great and trust worthy once, now its mostly political slanted bias and dribble anyway.

My guess is that if the law passes, Australian news disappears from those sites. No link to or nothing. Already have that issue with new Zealand news. No live. I finally found choppy pieces of 2 min segments from NZ, but hardly the best.

Social media platforms dropping news would be an overall benefit to society. The algorithms just keep driving people into a rabbit hole echo chamber.

People need to actively get out and research their news in order to get the full picture.

I mean look how many right-wing morons there are out there who believe Trump's lies, because they literally never see any articles that fact check him.
