Margaret Simons on the impact of Sky News Australia
Just how much influence does Sky News Australia have? In a recent piece for Inside Story 'Is Sky News taking Australia by storm?' journalist and media academic Margaret Simons argues that reports of the news and opinion channels influence is overblown and she downplays recent reports of Sky News Australia's success in connecting with online audiences.
Margaret Simons joins The Aus Media Report to discuss her experience of watching Sky News Australia for two full weeks recently and what she learned about the channel as it faces serious criticism (and a YouTube suspension) for COVID-19 denialism.
