In the last few years there’s been a massive increase in misinformation and disinformation. We saw the damage disinformation can do during the recent referendum on the Voice to Parliament.
Disinformation is unacceptable. It destroys trust, it undermines democracy and it damages our social fabric.
We must do everything we can to stamp out lies and fake news in political advertising and the first step is to adopt legislation that bans inaccurate or misleading ads during election campaigns.
Let’s fight this scourge and protect the integrity of our political system.

Misinformation is false information that is spread due to ignorance, or by error or mistake, without the intent to deceive.
Disinformation is knowingly false information designed to deliberately mislead and influence public opinion or obscure the truth for malicious or deceptive purposes.
