AAP spiked as APN bites the hand that feeds it
One APN executive heavily involved in the strategy to vigorously compete with My Property Preview was Stephen Tait, appointed in December to a new position as the CEO of the Queensland Chamber of Commerce and Industry. An outraged Kramer told Crikey that the appointment was ironic, given that QCCI’s membership was mostly 60% drawn from small businesses employing less than 20 people.
Before his elevation to the speakership, local Fisher MP Peter Slipper raised the APN-ACCC issue in parliament. Since then, he has been targeted by APN-owned rag the Sunshine Coast Daily, which recently splashed with the word “tosser” next to a picture of Slipper’s face. The story was ostensibly about Slipper’s recent ejections of MPs from question time.
