The Green Party deplores the concentration of media ownership—whether print or broadcast—in a few private hands.
Such a concentration of power restricts and reduces the public's access to a wide variety of information and opinion, distorts debate, and gives undue power to a small number of unaccountable proprietors.
We support the Media Reform Coalition's pledge on promoting a more pluralistic media environment. We will tighten the rules on cross-media ownership so that no individual or company owns more than 20% of a media market. We also support the development of sustainable funding mechanisms for small-scale independent media.
