Nine says misinformation will spread rapidlyBy Elliott Richardson in Media News on Thursday, 18th February 2021 at 9:40am
Australian media company Nine Entertainment has stated misinformation will faster and more easily on Facebook after the social network decided to ban news being posted and viewed in Australia.
Facebook’s decision to ban news is in direct relation to the News Media Bargaining Code, with a Nine spokesperson saying Facebook won’t be able to ignore Australian law even if it bans news.
“It is unfortunate Facebook have taken this position and it will indeed inhibit us from sharing our quality news and information with Australians. Nobody benefits from this decision as Facebook will now be a platform for misinformation to rapidly spread without balance. This action proves again their monopoly position and unreasonable behaviour.

5 Minutes with Daniel Van BoomBy Seamus Byrne in Media News on Tuesday, 02nd March 2021 at 8:38am
From the WWE to Jiu-Jitsu, CNET’s Daniel Van Boom has a love for the mat. But as you’ll see in his 5 Minutes, he’s got some deep thoughts on longform writing too. Here we go. What do you do and where does your work appear? I write, and that writing appears on CNET dot com. Anything else in your career you’ve been known for? Writing is the only thing I've done in my professional life. If journalism doesn't work out I am a ruined man. What did you really want to be when you were growing up? I wanted to be Stone Cold Steve Austin. The Texas Rattlesnake. The Bionic Redneck.

Melissa Doyle is back before the TV cameras - as host of SKY News’ exclusive interview with Australian academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert. Premiering on 9 March, the special will see Doyle talk to Moore-Gilbert about her ordeal in Iran, which included a long jail term over spying charges. Tehran released her in a prisoner exchange in November 2020, but later claimed she was working with a former Bahrain MP to spy for Israel. “Kylie is one of the most remarkable women I have had the privilege of interviewing. Her experience will both frighten and shock you, her determination to survive will leave you in awe, but above all, her grace and strength will inspire you,” said Doyle. “I do not know how she survived years of hell – solitary confinement, starvation and the constant fear of what could happen next. Her dignity can only be admired.”
