The Minister for Communications, Senator Stephen Conroy, spoke to the media today about the controversy surrounding the 2DayFM Royal prank call.
The latest instalment in the debate about media standards, practices and regulation erupted over the weekend following the death, reportedly by suicide, of one of the nurses contacted by the Sydney disc jockeys.
In essence, Conroy adopted a hands-off approach. He said it was up to the industry regulator, the Australian Communications and Media Authority, to deal with the issue.
