Early October 2014 the fear and loathing was palpable… my friend & colleague Marziya MohammedAli told me about the verbal and physical abuse that’s flowed from politics and some media politics coverage of “Terror Australis.”

 

Marziya is doing PostGrad work at ECU, and has been a Lectureer, Tutor, Researcher and Project manager at ECU.

Kevin Gosztola @kgosztola is a respected online colleague who is one of only a few who’ve covered the entire sittings of the Manning case, alongside @carwinb @pressfreedom and others.

The fate of Australian Senate candidate Julian Assange hangs on a US Military Court Judge’s decision expected to be handed down after tomorrow’s final day of the Bradley Manning case.

Reporter Kevin Gosztola chuckled when told Foreign Minister Bob Carr is denying Assange is under threat from the US.

He’ll be there for tomorrow’s final day where Manning is expected to be able to make a closing statement as he faces 20 to 90 years in jail.

I interviewed him live on overnight talkback at 6PR

Disclosure: I am a long time supporter of Wikileaks and the work of Julian Assange and all the others who risk everything to shed light on the ugly truth.

I was a mainstream journalist/radio host for 30 years, but no longer work in a newsroom ( apart from the odd fill-in to help out at 6PR & 96fm ) My work now is not objective, but I do strive for balance and welcome polite opposition.

My last interview with @MalcolmFraser12 on old politics, new media, shock-jocks, sovereignty

I first interviewed Malcolm Fraser more than 30 years ago when I was a full time mainstream media journalist & broadcaster – this interview is not very MSM and not meant to be an objective analysis. It was a delight.

The former PM and member of the World Eminent Persons’ Group remains active as the Founding Chairman of CARE Australia.
