Last night I appeared on ABC TV’s The Drum (video here) on the 10th anniversary of the 2003 Iraq war.
We discussed the appalling legacy of the Iraq invasion, the massive loss of life and continued chaos of the country. Accountability, in the political or media elites, is far and few between.
Finally, the idea that big media players in Australia, including the Murdoch empire, shouldn’t be regulated in any way is laughable and goes against what the general public wants in survey and survey. Bullying is what media owners do before breakfast. Free speech in a democracy means transparency towards journalists and owners has to include ways in which citizens can get answers from wayward outlets.
