Abstract

(https://theconversation.com/during-the-great-depression-many-newspapers-betrayed-their-readers-some-are-doing-it-again-now-135426) During the Depression, Australia’s major daily newspapers loudly resisted calls for economic stimulus to revive the economy. Even the tabloids - whose working class audiences were feeling the full brunt of unemployment - campaigned instead for government spending cuts that hit their readers hard.
