Former prime minister Paul Keating has been rather critical of the Nine-Fairfax merger, while attacking the federal government’s changes to media ownership in 2017. Keating said the changes would reduce diversity within the media, while he referred to Nine’s news output in rather unflattering terms. However, there is plenty of diversity of views within Fairfax’s radio network for example, while "The Australian" publishes views from all parts of the political spectrum. Keating’s views ignore the fact that the Australian media must adapt to survive.
