selective censorship not in Oz surely?
Oct 13th, 2017 at 6:19am
 
http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/ray-hadley-its-radio-silence-in-or...

This week, I’ve been speaking about a case in Orange, about a fatal accident where a 72-year-old lost his life. A man has been charged with dangerous driving causing death, and negligent driving causing death. He applied to have his ­licence reinstated and the magistrate agreed. His employer, a local business, provided a statement to the court that if he did not get his licence back, he’d be unemployed. Every time I’ve mentioned the story, the Southern Cross Network has stopped my transmission not only to Orange but stations across NSW, Queensland and South Australia. The local business is a substantial ­advertiser with MMM in Orange. Southern Cross says it’s a legal issue. If that were the case, this newspaper and my radio program would not be able to report any matters after someone was charged until the process concludes.

REPORTER: The condition of the budget will not be an excuse for breaking promises?

TONY ABBOTT: Exactly right. We will keep the commitments that we make.

That's true, JS. FD censors himself all the time.

Not just himself. Didn't he recently ban a whole swath of members who weren't Islamaphobes? He failed to provide an alternate reason

Yes, that's true too. FD doesn't like it when you don't want to ban the tinted races. Sustainability, innit.

Islamophilia is a fatal online disease and quarantine was called for.... Islamophilia can cause outbreaks of rioting and street offences, fatal bleeding and loss of head..... and is also a prime factor in the shrinking of secular organs  Lips Sealed

For once cods is making an important point.
The commercial stations are well known for censoring news that is negative towards it's major sponsors and major advertisers.

There was the John Laws and Alan Jones cash for comment scandal

More recently there was the censorship of the Getup commercial

Quote:
Such an irony: the commercial television channels, which ran a landmark free-speech case in the High Court to protect their advertising revenue during election campaigns, have now censored an advertisement criticising the coverage of the election by Rupert Murdoch’s newspapers.

This sort of corporate bias and censorship is the very reason that a well funded ABC is so important

The Right Wing only believe in free speech when they agree with what is being said.
