Self-Regulation:

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:

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.
