Forget about the mainstream media headlines. Here we give you a nuanced view on why Facebook decided to unfriend Australia by blocking all posts on your precious feed. We get deep into the weeds by reading the actual bargaining code legislation to inform you with what’s really going on. Journalism indeed.
As always we cover all angles using audio clips from different sources so you get everything you need to know, right here on the Naked Tech Podcast.
Episode 167. Recorded Saturday 20 February 2021.
