The channels deployed and the methods used were unprecedented in the case of a single individual, and alarmed a significant number of third party observers, including both JournOz and Civil Liberties Australia:
"Neither is it a question of the odd rogue article or broadcast; it has been systematic. We have seen countless examples of unsubstantiated allegations and in some cases outright lies. We have seen wide scale censorship, in the form of hard news stories being completely ignored. For any ethical journalist this is deeply disturbing. The fact that it has continued for so long reflects upon the profession as a whole." ~ JournOz
"The real story is how a young powerless woman is being imprisoned for a crime that she probably had nothing to do with. But the Australian media have become her persecutor" ~ Civil Liberties Australia
This report considers a number of these aspects, through the examination of a selection of the countless examples available. It considers the role of the state’s own broadcasting organ, the ABC, the delivery of output through a number of commercial broadcasters, and the disturbing impact of this sustained agenda upon the Australian public.
