Me­dia fair­ness

NT News - - NEWS -

THE Turn­bull gov­ern­ment in­sists a push to leg­is­late that the ABC must be “fair and bal­anced” will not change any­thing about the public broad­caster’s ed­i­to­rial poli­cies.

The change to the ABC Act — yet to be brought to par­lia­ment — is part of a deal the gov­ern­ment did with One Na­tion in ex­change for pass­ing its over­haul of me­dia laws.

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Min­is­ter Mitch Fi­field said there was no need for any up­roar about the pro­posed change.
