Senator BARTLETT (Queensland) (13:31): The answer to my second question is no—thank you for that. The first part of my question was about this concept of 'radical transparency' as opposed to 'general transparency'. It was in the context of an interview between Mr Hastie and a journalist who, not surprisingly, was interested to know where the line is about not just what they can expose directly but whether any organisation, such as WikiLeaks, or Edward Snowden or The Intercept or any of the organisations focused on this release information—where the risks are for the journalists in reporting these things. They haven't been the ones who have put them in the public arena, but, if there's been an act of radical transparency, what risk is there for others in reporting about the content that's been released under the radical transparency?
