Of course they wouldn’t - that’s the point. The show claims to be something it isn’t.

I’m not disagreeing with you here but the only policy I’d add to this is gambling - they literally own venues and profit from the misery of their voter base.

If wanted to give citizens a chance to interrogate the powerful, why focus so much on elected officials? What about CEOs of the ASX100? What about the five richest Australians? There is a reason people find the show insulting to our intelligence.

determining whether it was harsh, unjust or unreasonable will involve many factors including that consideration (and including whether SM posts made outside of work can be properly governed by a policy) etc. Mine was a non-exhaustive list of factors.

Brilliant OpEd by the charge puts at risk the public interest chain of investig. journalism: info path of whistleblower from journo to publisher to the public. This chain depends on technology, esp for security and anonymity protection

It’s similar to relying on Border Force to police people progressives find politically objectionable. I understand the desire. But it’s a bad precedent and not gonna work long term.

Of course. And people who call for people’s sacking, in my experience, rarely appreciate what it’s like to be unemployed involuntarily

Is he not an independent contractor? (NFI how this works)

So I guess I'm giving you the usual lawyer answer: it depends (for those playing at home: seek legal advice if you think you have been unfairly dismissed, and do so promptly)

Oh god I don't know enough about it. I would say it depends on: whether he is an employee (if he is stood down, sounds like he is?), what his contract says about social media posting and relevant policies, for example, and why their attempts to contact him failed (for starters)

Huh this glee from journalists about Sanders' personal wealth really fails to hit the mark. They just don't get why he is popular. Or how progressive politics could be done differently.

If he isn’t a journalist (notwithstanding the pettiness of this claim) what about the journalists who used his material? And what about journalists who also solicit leaks?

If you don’t want to defend him, just say so. But it’s hard to claim that’s a principled stance here.

Does it though? Journalists all over the world used WL material. Publications solicit leaks, by offering similar platforms for secure drops. Why is this the critical question?

With friends like these... (and I’m not even mentioning the broader context here, about the message this sends to journalists who have worked with Wikileaks material or publications that have solicited leaked material themselves.)

Instead, he condemns Assange without disclosing critical facts to his readers and without nuance. It’s poor form. And he is the founder of the Alliance for Journalists’ Freedom.

That’s an interesting debate to have because sometimes it’s the correct approach but sometimes they let themselves become shills for the powerful. This question doesn’t seem to even occur to Greste.
