Wanted: A newspaper with integrity

January 13, 2018

While today’s Advertiser catalogue of “crimes” committed by Council members makes interesting reading (“Grumpy” is second off the rank in the list ), it saddens me that there is one serious omission.

A reputable newspaper would/could/should conduct an in-depth expose of the disgraceful actions of Adelaide City Council over more than a century in its treatment meted out to the memorial to the South Australian heroes who died on the slopes above Anzac Cove during the First World War. .

But that, of course, would take courageous  and investigative journalism, something  which I, as a retired journalist, consider to be something of a rarity in Waymouth Street.
