ABC chairwoman Ita Buttrose says that the media’s ability to report on corruption or maladministration should not be viewed as a threat to national security. Buttrose has told the New South Wales Council for Civil Liberties annual dinner on 10 September that the media needs the backing of the general community to ensure it can do its job properly. The ABC, Nine Entertainment and News Corp Australia have been lobbying the government to amend legislation that impacts the work of journalists, following recent AFP raids on the ABC’s Sydney headquarters and the home of a News Corp Australia journalist.
