The Australian Government has released its Discussion Paper on Media Reform Options.
It is official, according to the Australian Government, the decision about whether to allocate another free-to-air television licence is too important to be left to unelected bureaucrats in ACMA.
The Australian Government plans to amend legislation so as to make the government of the day the decision-maker.
So, logically, this means that according to the Australian Government, the decision to allocate television licences is more important than the decision to approve a drug that murders unborn children.
Interesting priorities .....
