Censor the media? Let’s see what the High Court might think about that


That’s what News Ltd. boss Kim Williams not-so-subtley suggested today.

CEO Kim Williams told a parliamentary inquiry this afternoon he believed the introduction of a Public Interest Media Advocate would be “of very real interest to the High Court”.

“We are confident this approach in creating the Public Interest Media Advocate and the powers that are rendered unto it and the sanctions that are rendered unto it go against the free flow of political communication in our society,” Mr Williams said.

“In the event that these laws are passed we would be immediately seeking leave to appeal to the High Court.”

With any luck, it won’t come to that, but if it does, I hope he follows through, and I hope he wins.
