Cometh the week, cometh the thread. Use this thread to discuss anything that comes up during the week.
A couple of bits of reading to kick things off:
- The Australian‘s Mark Day writes about the News of the World phone hacking scandal. Credit to him and his newspaper for addressing the issue. But it strikes me as a touch ironic to see that particular paper, which seems happy to pick up the flimsiest attacks on the ABC (among others), criticising the Guardian and the New York Times for sustained reporting on a scandal that might reflect poorly on their competitors.
- At The Drum, Luke Walladge offers a defence of free speech in the wake of the racial vilification claim against Andrew Bolt (a reminder that this is an open legal issue; please comment appropriately).
Have at it.
