Police raid Australia’s public broadcaster ABC

Australia’s Federal Police raided the offices of the national public broadcaster ABC in connection to a 2017 story based on leaked military documents. The story indicated the country’s military forces were being investigated for some of their actions in Afghanistan. Police said they executed a search warrant based on a 2-year-old complaint that the broadcaster published classified material.

Since I don’t know much about the laws in Australia I don’t know how to feel about this. I read the articles but just like cops protecting their own I would the traditional news media does the same for their own. So I’m not sure what to believe. I just hope it all works out for the best.

I don’t see why the raids needed to happen. They were reporting on war crimes. The Australian people deserve to know what their taxes are funding. “National security” is just a bullshit excuse. Well at least we know the truth about what the Aussie military is like
