As the media reform saga drags on (and on, and on) through Parliament, there's been frothing and hand-wringing by those both for and against.

The government's changes to the Broadcasting Services Act will remove two diversity rules that have been in place for more than 25 years. Under the current rules, the same person or company can't own more than two out of three of the traditional platforms (newspaper, TV and radio) in the same radio licence area, and the same person can't own TV licences that reach more than 75% of the population. These two rules would be scrapped.
