Palmer confirms no media requests from fake media

FEDERAL Leader of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, confirmed today that he would not partake in requested interviews with the fake media so they could gain credibility.

“For too long media have been doing the same thing and expecting a different result. The media in this country want to control outcomes so they make up fake news,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“News organisations have had budgets cut significantly and services have declined. They have simply made up news to try and stay relevant.

“Many interviews are significantly altered to incorrectly portray an original interview. So many stories are sourced via other journalists, which is a pathetic state of affairs.

“I’m only spending advertising dollars on TV in this country to offer balance and to position real facts correctly.

“The United Australia Party wants to put Australians first and wants the Australian media to stop with its fake news,’’ he said.
