Canute’s Putting A Shrimp On The Barbie [10:36 am]
Australia’s communications minister has defended a proposed Internet blacklist as necessary to combat child pornography but admitted that at least one site had been wrongly blocked during trials.
Stephen Conroy also told Australian Broadcasting Corporation television on Thursday night that the blacklist was not censorship of the type practiced by China or Saudi Arabia.
“It is possible to support a blacklist and support free speech,” Conroy said. He did not explain how.
