Ministerial Direction to AFP & Press Freedom Inquiry

This week, the inquiry into press freedom began its public hearings, but the AFP investigations are still on foot.

The Daily was joined by Misha Ketche, journalist and editor of The Conversation, to discuss what this might mean for the future of Australia’s press freedom.
