AU - Kids bombarded by online porn as filter delayed

(Courier-Mail)
Up to 2.5 million Australian families are still waiting for the Federal Government to deliver on a promise to protect children from online pornography. A $93 million plan to offer every household in Australia free internet filtering software was expected to be running by the end of last year. But seven months after the announcement ? billed as the 'single biggest commitment' to protecting Australian families in the history of the internet ? parents are still waiting to install the promised filters on their home computers.
