Sky News is broadcast prominently in Qantas lounges and screens on a fleet of planes that traverse the globe. Sky News is representing Australia on behalf of Qantas and is no longer dedicated to news, now often focusing on dividing our nation and driving a wedge between cultures and racially diverse groups.   .

Whilst it is not our aim to discourage healthy debate, expression of opinion and freedom of speech we don’t believe these freedoms should extend to racism, bigotry and misogyny without challenge. Our challenge to Qantas, remove Sky News.

Update: Sky News invited a NAZI onto their show - he wants a picture of Hitler in every Australian classroom. Does Australia want to be represented to the world as a racist nation? Does Qantas want its brand to stand next to racism?

On Sunday July 1, the Outsiders program hosted by Ross Cameron and Rowan Dean aired defamatory, disgusting and sexist comments about a female politician, made by Senator David Leyonhjelm. As always, this offensive rubbish was blared across Qantas’ screens. 

Why is a public company that prides itself on inclusion and Australian values paying to spread this nonsense? Qantas passengers have no escape from it. The airline must immediately cease its commercial relationship with Sky News and choose either a news organisation with a belief in the tradition of fairness and balance, or just play cartoons or something instead.
