Tips and rumours

Fairfax and APN to merge? ... JuLIAR makes me vomit, says Liberal MP ... putting Australia on the map for CSG ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Media merger on the cards? Are Fairfax and APN preparing to merge some or all of their assets? The strong word on the street is that the two ailing media groups are close to a deal, covering their New Zealand newspaper assets (between them the two companies own almost all the NZ newspaper industry), their Australian regional mastheads, and maybe a lot more. Both companies, who have watched their share prices hit historic lows recently, are believed to be desperate to be seen to “do something” to deflect the attention of their very angry shareholders.

One thought on “Tips and rumours

  1. Pedantic, Balwyn

    How come our local “shock jocks” Jon and Neil haven’t exposed the bigotry and perniciousness of this guy?

    How come he sits in Parliament, when he espouses such vile philosophies?

    How come we actually voted for him, pre-selection gone mad?

    Sadly his past track record is equally damaging for the Liberal Party, but if Ted is the man we hope he is; something will be done!
