Today in Media Files, NT News political reporter Chris Walsh has made a shock exit from the paper raising  eyebrows in the Top End, and the Walkley Foundation has announced its finalists for its prestigious journalism awards.

NT News journo gone. The word overnight of the sudden departure of Chris Walsh from his gig as senior political reporter at the NT News, came as shock for many up here, particularly those of us who value fearless journalism. Walsh—without doubt the finest investigative journalist the NT has seen for many a long year—if not ever—moved to the NT in mid-2014 and hit the ground running hard and fast.

    Newspaper dump watch no.654
    This morning at Tullamarine to drop my partner off to catch a flight to Canberra for a medical conference I noted with interest the complete lack of ‘Australian / News Corp(se)’ newspaper stands at the departure gates… once a feature at many airports.
    Has News given up trying to increase their declining readership by making ‘available’ free copies of the Oz or Herald Scum, or has Melbourne Airport finally had enough of the waste.
