Kevin Rudd ‘lined up squarely with the loopy lefties’ at Senate inquiry

Being shown only one side of the story poses a huge threat to Australian democracy.

The Australian media has become one of the most concentrated in the world, third only after China and Egypt.

Media that saturates us with only one side of the story obscures our view on the world around us and undermines our ability to make informed and fair choices for ourselves.

One-Sided Sans is a disfluent typeface designed to prevent headline skimming. Portions of alphanumeric characters have been omitted so that only a partial view of the letters remain, rendering readability difficult—slowing the reader down to encourage deeper reflection and awareness of news consumption habits.
