Jeez. I didn't know you Aussies had government media. I presume you have free market alternatives?
Yes, we do.
For example in terms of television, most places have five free-to-air TV channels.
The ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) is goverment owned and run. The SBS (Special Broadcasting Service) is largely government funded, but is also permitted to accept commercial advertising. It's purpose originally was to broadcast multicultural and multilanguage programming. Both channels are largely left wing, but both do have some good programs in my view.
In addition to these two, we also have three national commercial television networks - Seven, Nine, and Ten. Some areas also have a public broadcasting channel, that is modelled on the American PBS, but is still in a fairly early stage of development.
And then, there's pay-TV which offers a lot more channels if you want to pay for them - including British and American news and business channels, on top of an Australian news and business channel.
