Nile Targeted

The HR Leader reports that a human resource executive working in the NSW Department of Parliamentary Services resigned following her part in an unauthorised audit of staff internet use. Christian Democratic Party leader Fred Nile was singled out by media organisation that implied that he could be viewing pornography, despite journalists being warned by the Parliament’s Upper House President Amanda Fazio not to read too much into the audit. The ABC News, and most other news outlets ran with the Fred Nile angle despite being told that the definition of adult sites used by the audit included normal newspaper sites as they sometimes had links to other sites that could be categorised as adult content.

Fred Nile said that every time someone accesses sites such as it is counted as one individual hit on an adult site.
