Shadow communications minister Michelle Rowland says public interest journalism will be a priority for Labor if it wins the 2019 federal election. She adds that Labor will also pursue changes to the media industry’s regulatory framework, arguing that it was designed for the analogue era and is outdated. Rowland adds that Labor would not seek to reverse the federal government’s cross-media ownership reforms, despite having opposed the abolition of the ‘two-out-of-three rule’.
