Today in Media Files, the NT News has editorialised against proposed anti-discrimination laws in the NT that its cartoonist could fall foul of, and emails released under Freedom of Information reveal concerns  ABC staff had with a memo telling them to cover all sides of the same sex marriage debate.

Save our scribbler. Darwin's NT News has launched an Australian-style defence of its cartoonist Colin Wicking, with a front-page story and double-page feature in today's paper using the stamp, "save our scribbler", as well as an editorial. The story shares Wicking's concerns that a proposed anti-discrimination law for the NT could lead to complaints being lodged about his work, published in the daily newspaper, the Sunday Territorian and the Alice Springs sister paper the Centralian Advocate.
