Before the ABC even broadcast a single word in 1932, there was controversy about political interference in the broadcasting of news and opinion. Dr Sally Young from the University of Melbourne is writing a history of newspaper influence on media policy-making from the introduction of radio in 1927 to the Finkelstein Inquiry in 2012. One of her case studies is the influence of Sir Keith Murdoch on the media policy of the conservative Lyons Government in the 1930s.
