    The Australian news is likely to be
    Group of Japanese tourist disemboweled by pissed off Red Kangaroo
    Poofters sent to America to represent Australians (much to my disgust)
    A small town with a population of 5 received 1 mm of rain today (wow record)
    Labour Party breaks election promise (noooraaaaaaaaaaahhhhh again ? i wouldnt of picked that)
    Petrol peaks at $45 a litre
    Mega rich multi billionaire gives 50 bucks to charity and shocks the country

    Be condescending if you want but filter and search lists would be useful and not censorship if you manage them yourself.

    Beyond a parents desire to perhaps filter rape, porn, murder, etc. Adults may find they are tired of hearing about Donald Trump...
    While a parent may wish to search for terms like science, space, health, etc. Many adults could use search to find news about their favorite sports teams...

    This isn't a child protection issue and I agree it isn't Nintendo's job to filter content, this is desire to have tools on the system to filter and search for the news system owners to read...

    Mate

    im not being condesending, im being light hearted
    the news channel has been active for what ? a day or so and already you all upety about violent this and violent that, give them some time and maybe they will come up with something for you

    my kids sit and watch the news with me whatever it may be and if theres something they dont understand i explain it to them as best as they can understand

    but might i remind you, that most of the violence that we are seeing on the news around the world is coming from AMERICA or somewhere that AMERICA is trying to impose its oil agenda (iraq)
    Gang warfare (America) Terrorisim (seeded in America, now effects the whole world) some of our dumber kids in Australia that have no culture are emulating American Gangs and getting in our faces with all that American Gang style and behaviour and their pathetic dress sense
    i could go on and on about what i think about America
    But i cant be bothered right now

    Australia sure is the lucky country

    so if your worried about all the violence in the News today, then the culprit lies no further than your own twisted country

    have a nice day

    AussieWii - I'm a proud australian, but what u said above America is utter bullshit.
    You cannot blame america for all that is wrong with the world, more specificaly Australia.
    Like it or not, America is our big brother and we stick up for each other. We have the same demented shit in Australia that there is in America, but just on a much lower scale (probably because we are much less populated).

    At least in America than can proudly wave their flag without having it confiscated (which, in my opinion, is the greatest travesty in Australian history. Are we really afraid to fly our own flag in our own country in fear that some Lebs are gonna get offended and starts riots?!)

    Err, dude?! Perhaps YOU should do some research on something called FACT. Our flag does have the union jack, yes. And ur right, it does have the southern cross. Do u know what that other big star represents?!
    I'll wait while u google it.

    Ok, so now u discovered OUR flag does have something australian about it?! Dude, making comments like that really does show u dont know what ur talking about.

    Your the gullible type that believes in what the minority says because that's the "cool" thing to do. Anyone for Kool Aid?!

    And just by the way, even if our flag has nothing to do with Australia on it, it still represents our country. People have died honoring that flag. Show a little respect.

    News sites don't rate their news like TV shows so why do you think they are going to start to just for Nintendo? You go to google News or CNN.com and I don't see any sort of filter; that's because everybody is smart enough not click on the link of any headline that might be objectionable. . .maybe you should try that.
