It's easy to be cynical about Conroy's assault on Google. Clearly, he wouldn't have made it if they had played nice on the net filter rather than make him look silly. The fact that it was, as Senator Scott Ludlam put it, an exercise in "corporate assassination" was shown by the fact that when, having let Conroy rant for a solid 8-10 minutes about Google's violation of privacy, Senator Mary Jo Fisher asked him whether, given how exercised he was about its collection of wi-fi data, he'd actually done anything about it. Conroy admitted he hadn't.
The regulator and the regulated: sorry, but the internet won’t play that game
Stephen Conroy rants at Google and Facebook. But he hasn't worked out that they don't play that game, and aren't that interested in what governments think.
