Filters Foil Frivolous Fear Mongering. Software has prevented Family First (Australian) senator Steve Fielding from showing Communications Minister Helen Coonan internet pornography on her Parliament House office computer. Senator Coonan initially agreed to allow Senator Fielding to show her offensive material that could be accessed from her office computer and asked him to carry out a similar demonstration at the National Library.
However, as the time drew near for the demonstrations, Senator Coonan said she had discovered that there was an internet filtering program on the computers in her office.
