Andrew Bolt, racial discrimination and free speech
Monday, 11 November 2013
Produced by Emma Rennie
There has been much speculation in the media about the election promise of Attorney-General George Brandis to supposedly repeal the "Andrew Bolt" discrimination laws, which protects people from public acts that are likely to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate someone on the ground of their race or ethnicity. As Emma Rennie found out, that may not be the case, but either way, there's a lot of discussion to be had about how these laws affect our rights to freedom of speech.
