Nine Entertainment Company CEO Hugh Marks, News Corp Australasia executive chairman Michael Miller and ABC MD David Anderson will jointly address the National Press Club on 26 June. They will discuss the fallout from the Australian Federal Police’s media raids, and press the case for legislative reforms to provide greater protection for journalists and whistleblowers. The federal government is under pressure to hold a parliamentary inquiry into press freedom, but the media industry believes that changes to national security laws should be the priority.
