Press Freedom Recently there's been a lot of talk in the media about the media! Earlier this month the house of a News Corp journalist and the offices of the ABC were raided by the Australia Federal Police.

We look at what press freedom is, why it's important and why its sometimes controversial. Aboriginal Flag Debate Last week there was some debate about the Aboriginal flag and who should be able to use it. It came after the AFL and several companies were asked to stop selling clothing with the flag on it. We look at the history of the flag and who has the right to sell its image and why.
