@independentaus My dream, says @RodneyELever: More honesty & less Murdoch. http://fb.me/46r8EICjz We have a proud freedom of the press, unwritten & unspoken. And we have a Murdoch press that exploits that freedom by telling lies, raw criminality/bribery & fear.  There are regulations which affect television & radio, but no regulation of our press. Rupert Murdoch began to abuse the freedom of the press as no one before him had ever done. Fairness & freedom are words that often go together.

#FreedomofSpeech #Tasmania Criminalising dissent: anti-protest law is an ominous sign of the times -The “anti-protest” bill was passed by Tassy parliament Tuesday part of the government’s intention to “re-build Tasmania’s forestry industry”.  The government has committed itself to a wide legislative agenda: amending the Defamation Act to allow large companies to sue protesters; defunding NGOs & tearing up a “peace deal” between foresters and conservationists

@antloewenstein  Civil liberties curtailed post #Snowden in #Australia & #NewZealand are not among the usual suspects when it comes to state suppression of civil liberties. But both countries, stung by Edward J. Snowden’s revelations last year about their intelligence-gathering efforts, have been cracking down on the press: Aus has passed sweeping secrecy laws, while police officers in NZ recently raided the home of a reporter who had published information regarding a government scandal.

Civil Liberties in Peril Down Under
