Happy six month birthday, Convergence Review. Wake up, slacker Steve

A note to media minister Stephen Conroy:

It’s six months today since the Convergence Review reported. Not that you seem to have done anything with it yet.

Next month it will be five years since you got the job.

Last time there were serious reforms of the media regulations was in 1992. You know, 20 years ago, before we got the internet.

Now I’m aware that you’re probably tired from digging trenches for the NBN.

And I know it’s always awkward annoying the big media owners. Particularly when there’s an election coming up.

But just a small request.

How about you get off your backside and do some legislating?
