    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of any media links I quote.

    On the view of censorship - yes the web is a free bastion. If you wish to make your own blog, site or other outlet for your voice you may do so. However PressF1 remains property of (fairfax?) who grace us with the server space and funding and is governed by the elected powers that be.

    My view anyway, t he web itself is a place of free speech but the site you use is the private property of the owner who may do what they please with your content or place restrictions on what you can do.

    The 'big six' broadcasters have banded together to form a self-regulating online complaints watchdog which they hope will be the precursor to a complaints body to cover all online and broadcast media. OMSA - online media standards authority - has been formed by Radio New Zealand, Maori Television, TVNZ, Sky, Mediaworks and Radionetwork and will oversee online news and current affairs content standards.

    Interviewed on Radio New Zealand's Feb 17 Mediawatch, OMSA chair Claire Bradley, pressed by producer Colin Peacock, admitted that it could well be a step to a self-regulatory body for all broadcast and online media. But why could not the Broadcast Standards Authority expand to take in the online media? - he asked.

    'We are opposed to a single regulatory body' she told him, adding that both the Press Council and the Advertising Standards Authority were self-regulating bodies but that the Broadcasting Standards Authority was formed by Government and therefore not self-regulated.

    'We've been spurred into action by the Law Commission's paper "News media meets the new media" ' she said. 'We are opposed to a single regulatory body - they (the BSA) don't want to be joined at the hip with us.'

    OMSA's complaints committee consists of three industry representatives and three from the public, which also supplies its chairman, Sir Bruce Robertson.

    Broadcasting Standards Authority, Advertising Standards Authority, NZ Press Council, and now OMSA - that's four bodies covering complaints from one body of media, in a mix of self-regulation and government control. That's surely a work-in-progress."
    Taking the 2nd to last sentence, history indicates that "work" and "progress" are impossible to apply in the last sentence? Calling it a Bill is entirely proper though.

    it used to be.

    Some of us come from the justice point of view, others from we must be nice at all times and other from the fence, takes all types, or so it seems.

    I am from the justice side.
