Media ownership: government fails to convince

3 Jun 2002
Description

In this submission to the Senate committee examining the Broadcasting Services Amendment (Media Ownership) Bill 2002, the Communications Law Centre argues that the public interest will most effectively be addressed by maintaining current regulations until such time as a genuine, workable media-specific public interest test is developed in relation to cross-media and certain pre-conditions have been met in relation to foreign ownership. The CLC argues that the current Bill offers no convincing alternatives to current arrangements. An attachment (PDF format) to the submission provides a guide to current ownership of newwspaper and broadcasting outlets. Other submissions to the inquiry can be viewed at the committee's site.
