2020 MEAA Press Freedom Survey

What is the state of press freedom in Australia in 2020?

MEAA logo

As an active campaigner for press freedom in Australia, MEAA wants to hear from you about what you regard as the most important issues.

The Australian Federal Police raids last year on the home of a News Corp journalist and the headquarters of the ABC brought renewed public attention to the decline of media freedom in Australia. Major publishers, broadcasters and media organisations, including MEAA, responded with the Your Right To Know campaign.

This third annual press freedom survey is open to people working in the media, including freelancers, whether MEAA members or not, and to media consumers. It will only take a couple of minutes to complete.

If you feel you would like to be more informed about press freedom issues before taking part in the survey, read the 2019 MEAA press freedom report, The Public’s Right To Know.

The survey is completely anonymous, but there is the opportunity to voluntarily provide further details at the end of the survey if you wish.

MEAA values your privacy (read our privacy policy here). This information will only be used internally by the union to identify key goals and objectives for our industry. By providing personal details MEAA may contact you directly to request further or more detailed feedback.
