The recent Finklestein Independent Media Inquiry delivered recommendations in regards to changes to media governance within Australia, with particular emphasis on media standards and the mechanisms by which those standards are applied.
While I don’t wish to get into a discussion with respect to the pros and cons of the report, the general response from the media outlets in this country has been more or less along the lines of “don’t worry guys, we’ve got this”.
They don’t really want any kind of change. They say everything is above board, and the complaints processes are adequate.
I may just make a complaint about this one.
As an avid watcher of all things NBN, I was startled to read on Google News the headline “NBN Sales Manager Pleads Guilty to ASIC Breach”. I had heard of no such case where anyone at NBN Co was under investigation for an ASIC breach.
