Mayne: would Gina oppress minority Fairfax shareholders?

Having seen how Gina Rinehart treats her kids, does any self-interested Fairfax Media investor seriously fancy being a minority shareholder in a complex beast controlled by Australia’s most litigious Rich Lister.

    Breathtaking!
    There really is no limit to the nonsense you allow yourself to print.
    How in God’s name did you ever retain a position in this chumpy site and how is it
    possible that your ridiculous advice & views manage to find themselves posted?
    I doubt that Rinehart reads your trash but if she did, she’d be ROFLHFAO.

    “Oppressed”? Are you trolling?

    Hilmer should shoulder a very large part of the responsibility for the demise of Fairfax. Here is a guy who was a big deal at the AGSM (which likes to think of itself as Harvard Downunder). Presumably some of the things that he taught aspiring MBAs was organisational change and positioning an organisation for changed business conditions. Massive fail all round.

    If ever Gina Reinhart has any influence on the Herald, I’ll stop buying it or reading it! As it is I have a challenging decision to make. I live in the Illawarra where too many people are going to lose their jobs and have those in NZ doing their work! Disgraceful!

    ‘If the $29 billion woman isn’t even capable of standing up in front of a few journalists and answering questions, she certainly shouldn’t be given control of Australia’s most respected independent media house.’

    You arent looking at things the way the majority shareholder may be seeing them.

    It may be

    ….”If a few journalists aren’t even capable of mustering the necessary wherewithal to buy an audience with a $29 billion woman, in order to ask questions, then what right do they have to even contemplate asking them, and how much respect should be given to ‘Australia’s most respected independent media house.’

    (thought bubble one: As the new controller of Australia’s most respected independent media house, I would like to get some buttock kissing morally bereft lickspittles of the ilk that Rupert has working for him in the UK)

    (thought bubble two: Rupert is letting some local buttock kissing morally bereft lickspittles go, and they could be cheap to solicit to a new media proprietor)
