Support An Independent Fairfax
Tuesday, 26 June 2012
A free and independent media has never been more important than it is today. But Gina Rinehart has shown her contempt for independent journalism by refusing to commit to the Fairfax Charter of Editorial Independence.
Fairfax journalists including David Marr, Kate McClymont, Peter Hartcher and Nick McKenzie have made this video to show their commitment to the Charter of Editorial Independence.
Twenty years ago, Fairfax journalists set down a Charter of principles that remain sound today. We won't allow personal, political and commercial interests to undermine our reporting. We will report fairly and fully the affairs of our nation and the world. We have respect for the truth - and we present all sides of the story.
Like you, Fairfax journalists are passionate about their work. They believe strongly in their mastheads and in the public’s right to accurate and independent information.
The Charter has served all five Fairfax mastheads well for more than two decades and in that time has been endorsed by each and every board member.
