What is self regulation and regulation in the media?

15 05 2013



Under self-regulation the media chooses to commit and uphold a code of ethics that they chose themselves. For example the ABC has a anti bias policy which is completely self regulated with out any kind of authority enforcing the rules.  One of the reasons a company might do this is to gain trust from the public and have an overall better quality of news for everyone.


Regulated news is news that is regulated by an authority or government. In Australia the government regulates it in a sub department called acma, which the public can report/complain about things that may be offensive, incorrect or insensitive to a minority or the public in general.
