Statement from SBS Managing Director regarding freedom of the press

 7 June 2019

Statement


At SBS, we share the concerns of media organisations in Australia and around the world of any activity which has the potential to impact freedom of the press.

The ability of journalists to hold individuals and organisations to account, to scrutinise and bring to light matters in the public interest, is critical to any democracy and underpins the trust Australians have in our independent media.
 
We stand by our colleagues across the industry in continuing to defend the values of a free press.


James Taylor, SBS Managing Director.
