Prime Minister Tony Abbott is seeking consensus in the industry before moving forward on media reform. Acknowledging technology is running ahead of regulation, he says it is too early to move on the audience reach rule as well as the two-out-of-three rule that restricts ownership of TV, radio and print. Without consensus, the government would simply be taking sides in a commercial dispute.
