Freedom Protest Coverage vs Climate Protest Coverage (9 News)

See if you can pick out the very subtle ways the Australian media uses language, tone and visuals to construct narratives that conform with their ingrained left-wing bias when covering these seperate protests in Melbourne two days apart.

One protest is covered as “furious” and attended by an “out of control angry mob”, while the other is subtly portrayed as heroic and necessary despite the disruptive techniques used by the protesters.

If you pay even closer attention, you might notice that this media organisation is providing a platform and helping to spread the meaning and message of one of the protests to provide a balanced perspective to the public, whilst for the other protest this same media organisation is making up its own story based on conjecture and fear mongering alone.
