Here’s a petition you need to sign to stop Fairfax stuffing up the local newspaper.

Can you believe that jobs are to be exported to New Zealand?

Keeping the Herald local is essential. From a personal point of view, the Herald has been crucial in spreading information about important issues in Newcastle.

The issues behind Laman Street would never have become commonly recognised and understood in Newcastle if it weren’t for local media. Sydney, national and international media outlets only paid tiny bits of attention to the QRAP that was Newcastle City Council against the Laman Street figs.

We all had issues with how the story was presented at times in the Herald but there has to be some truth to the saying that any publicity is good publicity and by and large the stories were balanced and thoughtful.

The Newcastle Herald has been in the Hunter for more than 150 years and it makes a profit of $15million a year. Why mess with it?

Imagine if Gina Rinehart had actually been successful in being appointed to the Fairfax board – she probably would have canned the paper altogether.

THERE’S A RALLY IN CIVIC PARK AT 1PM TOMORROW. SEE YOU THERE.
