Our idiotic government has lost it’s jihad against Network 10’s Big Brother, with ACMA finding that the broadcaster didnt break any laws. Naturally, being the self important imbeciles that they are, with all the other problems our nation faces, the Government is now going to try and change the laws! From News.com.au:
THE communications watchdog has found Channel 10 did not breach any broadcasting rules over a controversial incident on its reality television show Big Brother.
Communications Minister Helen Coonan today said there was no breach because a hole existed in rules governing internet broadcasts of that nature.
She said she had ordered the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to undertake a key review of the television code with a view to extending it to the Internet.
“Essentially what ACMA has found … is that because the internet footage was screened live as a webcast, and not stored, it isn’t technically broadcast (under the existing Broadcasting Services Act),” she said in Sydney.
Personally I agree with with Ashley (Michael Cox) on this one: butt out Government!
