Australian media groups feel threatened

Communications Minister Stephen Conroy announced that an independent inquiry would be held, in response to government concerns about the blurring of hard news and private opinion in Australian political coverage. This, in itself, was triggered by the privacy issues raised by the News of the World hacking scandal in the UK.
