Front pages of Australian newspapers are blacked out in protest

Australian newspapers today are jointly expressing their protest against the increasing restrictions on the freedom of the press. The front pages of the most important newspapers appeared with a front-page in which all words are crossed out in black.

In this way, the editors want to denounce stricter legislation that denies journalists access to sensitive public information. The law makes it more difficult for the press to work.

This year, the editors of the public broadcaster ABC received investigators. A search of the house of a political journalist from News Corp. in his home in the capital Canberra also caused resentment. ABC and the journalist used the information they had received from whistleblowers.
