Balanced – biased – misleading – whatever?

Happy Mardi Gras - especially to our local Sydney contingent!!!
DPMP want to say thank you to everyone who has participated in our focus groups and survey. We've heard from over 1300 people (including people from every state of Australia) but we still want to hear from more.
1. We all know drugs are one of the most popular topics in mainsteam media
2. In the proliferating era of multi-media, images such as drug busts, policing at music festivals and overdose victims are becoming even more pervasive
3. We know from related fields that media messages can affect what people and society think about drugs - their knowledge, the policy responses provided and attitudes to drugs
So to participate in the first ever study conducted in Australia into youth attitudes to media reporting on drugs please do our online survey: www.drugmediasurvey.com. It is open to anyone aged 16-24 who lives in Australia.
If you are outside this age group or have already done it please spread the word because the more people we get the more chance we have that our recommendations will be taken up by Government and media. The good news is we've unprecedented interest in this study from Governments and media outlets throughout the country. We think this suggests they know youth opinions do matter. So make sure you give us your opinion :-)
