Election's next month


 Australia's press regulator on Tuesday chimed in on the debate about the role of the newspapers of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp in the country's current election campaign.

The Australian Press Council in a letter reminded editors to provide accurate accounts of public issues after complaints that Murdoch newspapers had taken a clear stance against current prime minister Kevin Rudd ahead of the Sept. 7 election.
