Barry TuckerBarry Tucker is a retired journalist. He lives on the NSW Far South Coast and is active on Twitter. He also writes and maintains the TruthinNewsMedia resource centre and writes personal stories and political opinion on The Sniper. He is a keen bush camper and wildlife photographer.

Barry’s career in journalism covered almost 50 years. It is a little unusual in that he worked in all forms of news and special interest media, covering diplomatic, police, industrial, local government, national and state politics, court and general reporting, 4WD magazines and editing medical journals. He also worked in TV news, for news agencies in Australia and southern Africa, on local and city newspapers as a reporter and later a sub-editor. Towards the end of his career he used early desktop publishing to produce his own magazines, but never got the chance to migrate them to the web.
