Gina Gets Her Man

Fairfax employees must be worried about the latest move from Gina Rinehart. Longtime friend Jack Cowin has managed to secure himself a seat on the Fairfax board. Let’s hope that Cowin has been briefed on maintaining editorial independence.

At the very least Cowin could watch the video ‘Support an Independent Farifax’ a collaborative effort by the earnest journalists working at SMH and The Age clearly stating their understanding of independent journalism.

To use a chess analogy – Gina has positioned herself to put the board in ‘check’.
