A revealing conviction

By Ntp - 26 June 2007 0

In a worrying result Canberra-based journalists Gerard McManus and Michael Harvey received a criminal conviction and a $7000 fine each in a Victorian court yesterday for contempt of court for refusing to reveal a source of a leaked and accurate memo of no national security or other importance that may put lives at risk other than being embarrassing to the Federal Government.

ABC Online has good coverage of the story, including audio files, here.
