"Internet provides no news diversity": ACCC. | ABC News Online

Oh well, if Graeme Samuel says so it must be true.

Talking here and now about media reforms that will probably be dogging us for the next 50 years. Lack of understanding of what's happening out there. Short-sightedness relating to where this technology will lead.

Yep, sounds like a government department.

"The ACCC would have a role in ruling on takeovers and Mr Samuel has told the inquiry he does not consider the Internet to be an extra source of news, just another way of delivering existing material.

"We think the Internet is simply a distribution channel," he said."

Sounds like someone who has yet to step beyond the bookmarks that came default with IE.
