Sky News Australia published this video item, entitled “Media and tech giants ‘only call out alleged misinformation on one side’ of the political debate” – below is their description.
Sky News host Chris Kenny says most of the media and tech giants are only interested in calling out alleged “misinformation” when they see it coming from US President Donald Trump or from the right-side of politics. “The presidential contest has generated a very acute interest in truth. Truth and political debate. Truth and the media,” he said. “Much of it has centered on when the media and especially the tech giants call out untruths, call out erroneous claims, or point out lies. “But the trouble with this debate is that it is so jaundiced, most of the media, and certainly the tech giants, they are only interested in calling out misinformation if they see it coming from Donald Trump or from the right side of politics. “I’ve shown you before the absolute bunkum they spread from Joe Biden and others that never get called out.” Mr Kenny said the “hypocrisy paradox and inanity of political debate” – and truth – in the modern media age had serious implications for some of the world’s most powerful positions. President-elect Joe Biden announced former Secretary of State John Kerry would be the new administration’s Special Envoy on Climate Change. Mr Kenny said most in the media and on the left would welcome a return to so-called “government orthodoxy” but pointed out Mr Kerry had claimed in 2016, “there would be no separate peace between Israel and the Arab world”. “Under Trump – under the disrupter’s approach – we have seen peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Israel and Bahrain, and Israel and Sudan,” he said. “So Kerry got it badly wrong in a way that would have cost some significant positive developments in a crucial and volatile part of the world. “Let’s hope he’s closer to the truth. Let’s hope he can get it right, rather than just run with the zeitgeist when it comes to the issue of climate and energy policy. “But obviously, the expectations are not very prospective. He will be alarmist and that could be very bad for America and the world.”Sky News Australia YouTube Channel
