MEAA Guidelines on Reporting Hate Speech and Extremism

MEAA is concerned at the rise of hate speech in Australia. Racist attitudes and hate speech pose a threat to democracy, a free media and racial equality. The rise of extremism and the increasing use of hate speech place journalists in a difficult position: how should we report these issues, should we resist efforts to co-opt us, what role does “balance” have to play, should we seek to protect our audience?

These guidelines are designed to be read alongside the MEAA Journalist Code of Ethics
