    Just points up how useless ‘self-examination’ by ANY group is!
    All questionable behaviour should be the subject of an INDEPENDENT enquiry…no matter the type of employment or the level of the employee.
    Outrageous behaviour on Barrett’s part…and journalists think the general public should support their jobs? I don’t think so!!

    Interesting, but how is Barrett implicated in the ATO sting?

    Mate of Chris Warren’s then?

    The uselessness of the MEAA is demonstrated by the conflation of entertainment & arts as having the same interests as journalists.
    And they wonder why no one gives a shit that they are now being shed as surplus to requirements in the brave, new meeja world.
