(June 20, 2016) Day 44 – Fake Tradie

Little truth in political advertising

The Liberal Party’s new attack ad released on Sunday, “Labor’s war on the economy” featuring a builder, has been lampooned on social media using hashtag #faketradie.

Twitteratti claimed the protagonist was Andrew MacRae from Medina Inc. However, Mr MacRae stated on Twitter that he was not the person in the ad.

He also confirmed to Daniel Piotrowski and Rachel Eddie at Daily Mail Australia that he was not the man appearing in the ad and he did not perform the voice over work at the end.

The Liberal Party says the man in the ad is a real tradie telling the ABC, “The tradie is real, unlike Mr Shorten’s claims about Medicare.”

Political parties employ actors in many ads and it’s rare when a real person appears.

However, it’s a timely reminder that there is no law to require political advertising to be true. The Advertising Standards Bureau of Australia states, “there is no legal requirement for the content of political advertising to be factually correct.”

As for the impact of the ad, Deputy Political Editor at the Guardian, Katharine Murphy, commented, “But clever in this way: the ad explicitly references fatigue and disaffection in the electorate.”
