Senator O'NEILL (New South Wales) (11:23): Just for the record, I don't intend to allow the minister to verbal me and declare that this is a position for Labor going forward. This is a bill that you constructed in the dark, in a dirty deal with Senator Xenophon, who's no longer here. This is a bill with guidelines that you constructed that excluded key participants in the media landscape of this country. This amendment is important in that it seeks to redress that ideological attack. This is an extraordinary situation, not business as usual, Minister. So I don't want you to misunderstand in any way our action on this very particular matter.
