Media reforms cannot proceed while Ten is on the brink

Consideration of changes to media ownership rules should be put on hold until serious questions around the placing of Ten in administration are resolved, Bernard Keane and Glenn Dyer write.

Serious questions now exist about the role of Lachlan Murdoch, 21st Century Fox and Bruce Gordon in placing the Ten Network in administration — sufficiently serious that consideration of media ownership reforms by Parliament cannot credibly proceed at this point.

    “The entire political process was gamed” alright. Never trust a Murdoch as far as you can throw them – which would be approximately a centimetre (if I got lucky). When are the Libs and Labs going to wake up to the facts? You can do better Mitch Fifield. Stand up and be counted.

    Gamed? Perish the thought, that would require one of the parties to be acting in ignorance rather than both/all being complicit in a strike at the body politic.
    Perish the thought.
