Student Protests on Q & A, ABC -vs- News Limited

Amanda Newbery is a regular guest expert on the Hidden Persuaders with Steve Austin on ABC612 to discuss advertising, the media and how it shapes our lives.

Allan Bonsall the Principal of, and Dr John Harrison, University of Queensland made up the panel which discussed:

  • Students Protesting Corporatisation of Universities on Q & A – does this type of protest get the results the protestors are looking for, or does it just get media coverage and irate viewers?
  • ABC vs News Limited – their public brawling seems to have a personal basis. The leaders of each organisation should be able to resolve this and deliver the service their audiences expect.
  • James Packer and David Gyngell – how much attention do we give people for reasons of celebrity
