How & # 39; daily racism & # 39; of Australia has moved from the political fringe to the mainstream
During the time of the 50 Muslim worshipers killed in two mosques, Australia's oldest politician Fraser Anning issued a statement in what he called "the true cause" of the attacks.
Anning said, "the immigration program allowed Muslim fanatics to move to New Zealand at the forefront."
Two days later, Anning appeared on the popular show Sydney radio "Kyle and Jackie O," told KIIS FM listeners that he condemned the gunman but insisted that "countries with immigration in Islam" had "increased violence."
With an accused gunman, the 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, who has been charged with 50 killing and resigned in court in June, his homeland faces some uncomfortable question about how much airtime it provides xenophobic views.
Experts say that the rise in smart figures like Anning in mainstream media leads to a normalization of racism ̵
1; and encourages groups far right from shadows.
In recent years, "mainstream media have begun to exhibit so many rights and ideas as part of a conventional public debate," said Tim Soutphommasane, formerly the Australian Commission on Racial Discrimination, at CNN.
"The default is that Racist ideas are worthy of broadcast but as it happens, it does not give a thorough study or inquiry," he told CNN.
In an interview with Anning at KIIS FM, presenters asked the senator's logic, with Kyle Sandilands politicians whose terrorist attacks were not due to "a whole culture, it was a very serious consequence of the thought.

KIIS FM refuses to comment on its decision to have Anning in the entertainment radio show.
Despite the Australian Senate – – the greatest House of Parliament – formally denounced Anning for what lawmakers described different descriptions as his "awful," and "shameful "comments by Christchurch, he did not appear to apologize at any time soon, telling Reuters that reproof was" a noisy attack on
CNN called on Anning's office but not received a response at the time of publication.
Australian white supremacists "will surely be impressed with the comments of Anning," said Stephen Morgan, a film director at Menzies of King's College London Australia Institute, whose work focuses on the historical representation of Australia's identity in the media.
Now in the wake of Christchurch attacks, some Australian publishers ask for paper Their profession played a role in promoting racial division.
Attack that drives the search of the soul
Australian political issue over the decades, in the anti-asylum seeker rhetoric that appears under former Prime Minister John Howard decades 1990 and 2000s – his famous quote: "We will decide who is coming to this country and the circumstances where they came from" – became an important issue in the elections in almost all federal elections since then, Morgan said on CNN.
Today, rhetoric has been strengthened amongst government figures and media commentators in the right "sing from the same hymn sheet."  Morgan teaches the debate around the Medivac bill passed in February allowing for asylum seekers in Nauru and Manus Island in Australia for medical treatment – and where some elderly politicians are warned can see the murderers and r The apists entered the country.
This kind of "daily racism" has been "strengthened by distant groups in Australia, especially over the past three to four years," the director of All Together Now, an association of equality race in Sydney, in CNN.
Like of the whole fear of Christchurch
When Sky News Australia, a member of CNN, has given the live stream segment of the gunman, a small Muslim journalist Rashna Farrukh decides he can no longer work on the conservative network, who published a personal account of his years of moral misery there.
"As a Muslim girl, I have had a lot of conscience crises working here," wrote 23-year-old Farrukh, who worked at the junior role of liaison at the Canberra studio of the network  "I stood on the other side of the studio doors as they punished every minority group in the country – with mine – adding polarization and paranoia to their viewers," he wrote, encouraging other publishers to " act in our morals. "
In a statement, Sky News Australia said:" We respect Rashna's decision and wish him great future efforts. As news and national broadcaster Sky News focuses on debate and the discussion that matters to a healthy democracy. We feature a wider range of insights and counterviews challenged and considered than anywhere in the Au television straly. "
From fringes to center stage
Turn on breakfast TV or current affairs shows in Australia today, and you often find figures that previously stood in political fringes.  One of the most popular known founders of One Nation, Pauline Hanson, who gained the popularity of the 1990s as an unpleasant fish and the owner of a chip shop that claims to be in the country is at risk of being " sinking in Asia. "
CNN called the office of Hanson, who said he was "currently recovering from an emergency appendectomy" and "is not available to provide a response."
Sunrise executive executive Michael Pell stands at the decision to have Hanson and Latham, telling CNN that the show "always features figures from no one, but all sides of the political spectrum."
Pell included the extensive list of "regular political visitors over the years" that included former Labor and Labor chief Kevin Rudd, Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young and former Democratic senator Natasha Stott Despoja. "All are given a regular platform and everything is in the account, even their politics," Pell says.
But it seems some public figures are still considered too intense for TV. In August last year, Sky News Australia was facing a huge backlash for a 10-minute interview with neo-Nazi nationalist Blair Cottrell, where he was asked about immigration and his political ambitions.
The network said "wrong" The Cottrell in the air and pulled out the famous Sunday show – "The Adam Giles Show" – where he appeared.
According to Karen Farquharson, professor of sociology at Melbourne University, the practice of the Australian media that provides equal weight on both sides of an issue "contributed to an environment where racial voices gained unreasonable winds. "
Australia's White supremacy
"At the heart of racism in Australia's media, Morgan said," problems in the entire white structure of Australia's society in general. "
"Only one who looks at the regularity of which white commentators – in the television of breakfast and elsewhere – take it to themselves to comment, and decide on the native issues despite a clear lack of expertise, experience, or
Morgan taught the veteran TV presenter Kerri-Anne Kennerley in January asking if the prototypes of "Day of Attack" had ever been called "outback," where " children, where babies and five years The racist accusations from Channel 10's similar panelist Kennerley are firmly incumbent, saying the 2GB radio "never made a rasonist," was " hurt "by the suggestion he or she has, and" only stated the truth. "
Regarding Anning, an online petition calling for his resignation now earns more than 1.4 million signatures.
Often described as an "unintentionally" senator after attaining the job when the previous party A member was sunk, Anning quickly made a name for himself in Australian politics over the past year.
The challenge facing Australia's media today, is how much of the country's extremist voices are worthy.
