Public event: Who’s afraid of Gina Rinehart?

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.
