Jack Waterford thunders at ACT Policing media management

By johnboy - 21 March 2006 24

The Canberra Times is running a rare and welcome tirade by Jack Waterford against the restrictive media relations empire of ACT Policing.

Australian Federal Police serving the ACT are now operating under such complete media management arrangements that the public has almost no information about what the police are doing, how efficiently and effectively they are doing it, and is not given even the most basic information about crime and order in the community.

The ability of ACT Policing to hide in the shadows has worried me for some time too.

What’s Your opinion?

When you consider that Waterford wrote a story in 2008 that directly caused the then ACT Police Commissioner to commit suicide, you can well understand their reluctance to deal with him.

Are you serious !!! The Commissioners death was tragic but are you seriously suggesting that the we are not allowed to criticise the police ? All it shows is that she probably should not have been in the job she was in or that she should have been receiving help.

Audrey Fagan died in 2007.

OH well, might as well add to the zombie thread…

The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

It’s the HATE press!!!!!

Leave Britney alone! I mean, Julia…..
