About

This blog is dedicated to the study of the methods of communication used in Australia and New Zealand. These two countries are fairly similar to the United States; they have English as a national language, they have a three-pronged government system, and they have individualist values. The main difference between the United State and Australia and New Zealand is that the latter two countries each have a distinct cultural historical background. These backgrounds have a hand in shaping the countries in the modern world where mass communication is commonplace.

The following blog posts will illustrate how the structure of the media, the freedom of the press, the access to media, culture, major issues and current affairs all effect the way Australia and New Zealand communicate nationally and internationally.
