In fear, CNN says it has stopped posting articles on Australian Facebook pages, citing a court ruling that media firms would be held liable for defamation made by the general public via the comments section.

The company has also tried to collaborate with Facebook, to request comments be muted – but those discussions have reportedly failed.
