28 February 2012

Written by: Matthew Smith

Australia’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, has bought a stake in Fairfax Media. Many assume it’s for the purpose of pushing a political view.

Should we be afraid of Gina Rinehart? What, if anything, does this mean for the future of independent journalism in Australia?

Stephen Mayne (founder of Crikey), Tim Wilson (Director of Climate Change Policy and the IP and Free Trade Unit), and Margaret Simons (Director of the Centre for Advanced Journalism at the University of Melbourne) take part in a panel held by the Centre for Advanced Journalism.
