An example of where the poison springs from. A report on the Bolt case from Tom Hyland, a far left repeater working for one of the most disgusting communist propaganda sheets in Australasia, The Melbourne Age–
Media researcher and academic Denis Muller said the case will turn on what type of speech Justice Bromberg finds Bolt has engaged in. Justice Bromberg is likely to find in Bolt’s favour if he judges his words were fair political comment. But Bolt will lose if the judge finds he engaged in ”hate speech or fighting words”. But Dr Muller doesn’t believe that a decision against Bolt would be a blow to freedom of expression.
”I don’t accept that argument for one minute,” he said. ”Freedom on speech is a very important value in a democracy, but it’s not an absolute value. There are all sorts of circumstances where freedom of speech gives way to other interests.”
