News Limited to defend free speech; shame about Fairfax

A week after media executives signed a letter to Prime Minister Julia Gillard defending free speech and freedom of the press, News Limited CEO Kim Williams has vowed to fight government censorship, possibly all the way to the High Court.
Just over a week ago, media executives signed an industry letter to the PM attacking more regulation.
Those who signed the letter were: Nine Entertainment's David Gyngell; Seven West Media's Don Voelte; AAP's Bruce Davidson; APN News & Media's Brett Chenoweth; News Limited's Kim Williams; Foxtel's Richard Freudenstein; and Sky News's Angelos Frangopolous.

Sadly, Fairfax and Network Ten boycotted the letter. Fairfax intend to raise their own concerns separately.
