Media briefs: Ackland to Guardian … Ten’s big scoop … Carney’s swipe …

Richard Ackland gets snapped up by the Guardian Australia. And other media tid-bits of the day...

Fairfax’s loss is Guardian, Saturday Paper’s gain as Ackland joins upstart stable. Guardian Australia has pounced on long-standing Sydney Morning Herald legal commentator Richard Ackland after his column was discontinued by editor-in-chief Darren Goodsir when Ackland revealed he was writing for The Saturday Paper. He’ll be Guardian Australia’s legal editor-at-large, as well as a columnist, writing an opinion piece and a news story on alternating weeks. He’ll also keep writing Gadfly, the diary-style column in The Saturday Paper that got him boned. He’ll also start writing a law piece for the Sat Paper every five or so weeks.
