I haven't read the beltway stuff, but the release of the Vance phone records has me intrigued.
Vance is a journalist employed by Fairfax Media. I presume Vance's phone is owned and paid for by her employer. They would get the bills, and the records.
She has a "pass" to allow her access to the media gallery in parliament. But how does Parliamentary Services get her phone records in the first place? Is it part of the "deal" with the press gallery - a security thing?
Can anyone enlighten me.
