A journo's take on the media bill

This media bill.... has anyone read it anyway or as usual, are we just commenting on things we know very little about? I am beggining to think it isn't such a big deal anymore....don't get me wrong, I think if the media was really 'gagged', we would be in big trouble, and me being a journo, it wouldn't be good for me, so a gagging is the last thing I want. But for me, this is no longer about the media bill.... there is much more to this..... Yesterday, I attempted to go through some literature on the bill. I still haven't seen the amendment bill, but I think from what I have gathered, I have a good idea on what is going on. Allow me to dissect, and please feel free to contribute.
