The transcript is a satirical critique of the News Corp Bargaining Code implemented by the Australian Government. The code aims to address the decline of traditional media by making tech platforms like Facebook and Google pay for news content. The speaker criticizes the code, highlighting that it does not ensure the revenue goes to journalists and instead benefits shareholders. The speaker also points out that the code aligns the interests of big media and big tech, potentially leading to more clickbait content. Smaller publishers and independent journalists are disadvantaged by the code, which the speaker suggests is a deliberate move to silence critics of the liberal government.
