Title A Love Affair with Latham? Australian News Media Chronicle January-June 2004
Abstract/Summary This critical interpretation of key issues and events in the Australian news media in the first half of 2004 analyses trends in four areas: the reporting of politics, changes in media policy and regulation, attempts to limit media freedom through restrictions on reporting, and movements in people, ownership, and broadcasting ratings. Of particular significance are the failure of the Australian Broadcasting Authority to adequately address cash for comment, a failure which had a considerable flow on effect; continuing challenges to the integrity of the ABC from within and without; mooted changes in defamation law; and a perception, again from within and without, that the Nine television network was losing its pre-eminence in commercial broadcasting. Much of the reporting and the policy debate were conditioned by the prospect of a closely contested federal election in the second half of the year.
