Media Blackout Leaves Aussie News Agencies, Fans In Dark On Indian Cricket Tour
Published February 14, 2013
JOINING THE BANDWAGON: In Sydney, Lara Sinclair reported News Ltd. and the AAP "will join a protest against publishing images and video" from Australia's cricket tour of India. The lockout was described as arrogant, "Orwellian" and contrary to the notion of a free press by Fairfax, which "appears also to support the ban." However, a spokesperson "would not confirm if Fairfax would join a publishers' protest." The spokesperson said, "We will be making our own decisions." A statement from The Newspaper Works suggested major Australian publishers "would enforce a similar ban" against what it termed "an attack on the news supply network." AAP Editor In Chief Tony Gillies confirmed that the news agency "would not send a photographer to India and would not distribute BCCI images" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 2/13).
