Press Council complaint about Kenneth Davidson's recent NBN article progresses

On May 29, I decided to complain to the Press Council (and of course The Age)

On May 27th, you paper published the following article by Kenneth Davidson, Senior columnist at The Age Don't look now, the white elephants are multiplying

There are a large number of false claims and mistruths in this article as has been documented in detail by several respected technical journalists.

Fairfax columnist prints blatant NBN falsehoods
Yet more MSM NBN politicking 

I am making a formal complaint and I hope to see this to be properly addressed 
Well yesterday, I got a reply 
Dear Complainants, Complaint:

The Age I write in relation to your complaint about the article “Don’t look now, the white elephants are multiplying”, published on 29 May 2013.
The complaint is proceeding to level 2 for an adjudication. We will be in contact again to inform you of the outcome. Thank you for your patience.

Yours Sincerely, Justin
Australian Press Council
Suite 2 Level 10

Level 2 means Adjudication, so based on the complainants, it looks like, quite rightly a number of people complained about this pathetically biased article.

Let's see what happens
