SBS partiality

In the SBS code of practice it states that one of it’s obligations is impartiality, but one of it’s most regular promotions is an advertisement promoting the “We are Australians” song.

Time after time in this ad, focus is placed on the one symbol to be seen, a large  rainbow banner, thrust into  the foreground, which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual  and transgender lifestyles. The ad also pictures same sex couples, but without mum, dad, and the kids families, or any other symbol to provide the required balance.

This complaint is made under section 6.2 because the ad is partial  to lgbt propaganda, and misrepresents the Australian population as a whole.
