The Aussie council saying NO to Netflix

Published

on

An Australian local council in northern NSW will write to Netflix to say no to the filming of a controversial reality tv show that was set to film in the iconic beachside community.

The Council voted to formally oppose the show, which has drawn the ire of thousands of locals.

‘The risk is that this show is going to turn us into a parody.’

Mayor Simon Richardson

‘If you’ve got these people who are basically a bit of a stereotype of one type of person who lives here then the whole show becomes about taking the Mickey and that’s potentially really damaging to our community.

In addition to expressing its disapproval and opposition, the Council voted to request that Netflix ‘relocate to another location and community that is supportive of hosting the show’.

Mayor Richardson said that he had been contacted by the head of Netflix who had attempted to reassure him that the show would not be damaging to the local community, and that the company wanted to invest more resources into future productions in the Shire.

‘I said, well, this show is your litmus test,’ he said.

Netflix has been approached by senior figures in the media industry who were trying to dissuade him from allowing the show to go on.

Why Youtube is banning these ads

Published

You’ll no longer see alcohol, gambling, or politics ads when you visit YouTube.

According to YouTube’s ad support page, ads in the masthead slot can “drive massive reach or awareness,” but now the video platform will no longer be approving ads relating to these areas for its masthead ad slot, which appears at both the top of the website and the app.

As it’s one of the first things users see when they open YouTube… Google says it will help lead to a better overall experience for consumers.

As for politics… it will help avoid backlash, like when then-President Donald Trump purchased the top ad-slot for three days during the 2020 election.

According to Google, last year the company changed the slot to show targeted ads, rather than ones that had been reserved for an entire day.

Google has tried to balance its policies to determine what it does and doesn’t show in ads.

The tech giant has also audited ads that used hate speech, political misinformation and conspiracy theories.
