MARGO: Everyone know journos can’t keep a secret, but they’ve somehow managed to keep the list of Federal Press Gallery members secret from the general public. Until now.

We’ve published two pieces on the PG triggered by its refusal to allow @callumdav to join as a reporter for @independentaus; Your guide to the Press Gallery and its gatekeeper and The Press Gallery contemplates reform: Join the conversation

As regular @NoFibs readers know, I FOI’d the list of Press Gallery members when I realised, much to my surprise, that it was secret.

Press Gallery President David Speers is now seeking gallery members’ permission to make the list public.

David’s consultations have alerted some members to its secrecy, and, lucky for us, one of them thinks the secrecy so silly I’ve had a leak. So here is the 2012 list with contact details of non-office bearers deleted.

The public will get the latest list online either via FOI or the new PG website, whichever comes first.

  1. Federal Press Gallery list revealed http://t.co/gzuMjdmmhh via @NoFibs #auspol #ausmedia First time publicly listed anywhere, worth saving!

  2. Joy Cooper says:

    Good news, Margo. At least one member finally saw sense.

    Never realised there were so many of them though. You would think with such a large Press Gallery membership that at least one or two would get the stories right, occasionally.


  3. i would much rather have their addresses.


  4. Federal Press Gallery list revealed So Many! Do they work rosters? Will try to follow, to find original voices. http://t.co/04QfOv05Z0


  5. Lord help us; so many of them, you would think they would make a better fist of it!

  6. J.Fraser says:

    A few there would be looking down a short barrel of retirement.

    Unless the “club” has already promised someone else IA should be there.


  7. Want to know who is in the press gallery? No longer secret. http://t.co/0O1FaRn8zZ


  8. Interesting that Bernard Keane only one from Crikey considering his articles are posted in Murdoch empire’s BUSINESS SPECTATOR sold to them by ABC money bags ALAN KOHLER…and BERNARD KEANE HAS BEEN CALLING FOR A BROADENING OF THE GST etc.


  9. “ @scroft37 @Leroy_Lynch: Federal Press Gallery list revealed http://t.co/ad1X69Xd3m via @NoFibs read article at end of this on defamation


  10. This Press Gallery ‘leak’ is surely outdated, Michelle Grattan and Katherine Murphy are still listed under Fairfax: http://t.co/DWa16gGguK

Have your say
