Why The Australian is un-Australian: all ego and little heart: @journlaw comments

BY6wVXjCMAATiKI

First they came for journalism educator Julie Posetti, for simply tweeting some critical comments made publicly by a former staffer of The Australian. [That time I did write a commentary in Crikey about why editors shouldn’t sue for defamation.] Then they came for Matthew Ricketson, Greg Jericho, Margaret Simons, Wendy Bacon, Martin Hirst and Jenna Price […]

Tooling up the #CitizenJournalist: @ange_gee_gee reports on #ComeCreate

ComeCreate

THE face of journalism is continually evolving and the increased role of citizen journalists is one indicator of this. While websites like No Fibs provide a voice for citizen journalists they are still regarded as lacking the authority and accuracy which mainstream media journalists and publications are thought to possess. Recently, I have been a part of […]

AFHP-Homepage

This is the second in a new No Fibs series edited by Margo under her collaborative thesis. The first piece was by Michael Burge … and the next one will be by Tim Dunlop.

In the wake of Mike Carlton’s removal as a Sydney Morning Herald columnist, it’s worth recalling another instance of Zionist lobby power. Here’s the chapter by Antony Loewenstein in Not Happy, John! featuring an interview with Bob Carr. First, my scene-setting introduction to the story. I'm hearing there's considerable pressure at #Fairfax board level for action […]

Time for @mediaalliance to take charge of secret tapes ethics debate: @margokingston1 #MediaMargo #MediaWatch

mediawatch-theage

I sent this email to the Media Alliance today. Dear Media Alliance, Last night’s Media Watch discussed the ethical dispute among journalists over the ethics of recording interviewees without their permission. The dispute shows serious disagreement on the matter. The Age believes it is always ethical. Some others, including me, believe it it permissible only […]

Selling out ethical journalism: @journlaw on @theage secret recordings #springst

TheAge

It is a sad day when senior political figures steal a journalist’s recording device and destroy its contents, as we have been told happened at this year’s Victorian Labor conference. But it is an even sadder day when we hear a major newspaper – The Age – justifying a senior reporter secretly recording their conversations […]
