How does The Sydney Morning Herald allocate
reporters to various rounds?
The environment is a touchy-feely area – so
you’d think editors would be keen to avoid any suggestion of conflict of
interest. Yet the Herald recently ran a story “Greenpeace calls for ‘dirty’
by a “former Greenpeace employee” Jano Gibson. Yes, the disclosure’s there –
but things look a bit cosy.
Then there’s this email circular:
Metropolitan CMA and the Nature Conservation Council of NSW are presenting a
media training workshop for environmental community groups who want to improve
their capacity to promote local issues and reach a wider audience.
Room, Newtown Neighbourhood Centre,

Pardon the pun, but is this a case of not
being able to see the wood for the trees?
