Sunrise Morning Show Found to have Breached Racism guidelines

First topic message reminder :

SUNRISE has been found to have breached the TV code of practice over a segment on indigenous children.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority investigated the Channel 7 breakfast program over a segment on March 13, in which commentator Prue MacSween said “we need to do (the Stolen Generation) again, perhaps”.
The broadcasting watchdog found the segment “provoked serious contempt on the basis of race” and breached the Commercial Television Industry Code of Practice.
Channel 7 said it was “extremely disappointed” by ACMA’s ruling, arguing it was “censorship” and “a direct assault on the workings of an independent media”.
The panel discussed a report saying Children’s Minister David Gillespie had proposed white families should be able to adopt indigenous children to save them from rape, assault and neglect.
Mr Gillespie later said he did not use the phrase “white families”.
Sunrise host Samantha Armytage introduced the segment by saying: “Post-Stolen Generation, there’s been a huge move to leave Aboriginal children where they are, even if they’re being neglected in their own families.”
She wrongly claimed indigenous children could not be fostered by white families.
Panellist Prue MacSween said during the segment that removing the kids was a “no-brainer” and that there was a “conspiracy of silence and fabricated PC outlook that it’s better to leave them in this dangerous environment”.


MacSween, who was previously criticised for saying Yassmin Abdel-Magied should be run over, added: “Don’t worry about the people who decry and hand-wring and say this will be another Stolen Generation.
“Just like the first Stolen Generation, where a lot of children were taken because it was for their wellbeing, we need to do it again, perhaps.”
NSW Greens MP David Shoebridge, who was one of those to lodge a formal complaint with ACMA, welcomed the decision.
“The segment Sunrise aired was highly offensive, racist and divisive with one commentator going to far as to voice support for the continuation of a Stolen Generation,” he said in a statement.
“The media should be held to account for promoting and profiting off these hurtful, dangerous and backwards views.
“Aboriginal people face systemic disadvantage with critical housing shortages, entrenched poverty and grossly disproportionate rates of imprisonment.
“It’s obscene that anyone would respond to this by urging that we return to the racist child removals that happened under the Stolen Generations.
“Any media organisation that took their duty to report the facts seriously would be focusing on this systematic disadvantage instead of broadcasting throwbacks to the White Australia policy.
“The real test for ACMA now is what safeguards they make sure Channel 7 puts in place so we never again see this sort of racist bile on our TV screens.”
The segment sparked outrage on social media and led to protests at Channel 7’s studios in Martin Place and during an episode of Sunrise filmed on a Gold Coast beach during the Commonwealth Games.

I think that newsfix should follow the ACMA ruling too ...


“It’s obscene that anyone would respond to this by urging that we return to the racist child removals that happened under the Stolen Generations.
“Any media organisation that took their duty to report the facts seriously would be focusing on this systematic disadvantage instead of broadcasting throwbacks to the White Australia policy.
“The real test for ACMA now is what safeguards they make sure Channel 7 puts in place so we never again see this sort of racist bile on our TV screens.”

we need to stop Didge's Racist Bile 
even if it born from his Ignorance (an Ignorance he is proud of and refuses to improve)

They may want to start by telling Veya, not to judge people by the colour of their skin

That would be a start. Clearly he does not respresent all Australians and neither do these media idiots in this article.
