Did Tony O'Reilly support "fraud and corruption inGovernment

Postby russellm » Sat Nov 15, 2008 2:07 am

Does Tony O'Reilly support "fraud and corruption within government and judicial ranks",or is it just The Daily, based on Australia's Sunshine Coast of Queensland? We [at the http://HaigReport.com group of Internet WebSites] do not. Yet, one of Tony O'Reilly's newspapers has attacked us because we rail against fraud and corruption where-ever it occurs. The Daily, a 'provincial' newspaper based on the Queensland Sunshine Coast in Australia, is one in the 'Tony O'Rielly Stable'. It dismissed our reports into fraud and corruption in government and judicial ranks, as simply 'diatribes' and 'rants'.

On 3rd November, 2008, The Daily [aka The Sunshine Coast Daily], a Provincial Newpaper with an Online presence, based on the locale of Nambour and the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia, published an article entitled 'Internet Nightmare for Nambour Pharmacist". In that story, the Newspaper and the Publisher APN News & Media Limited proceeded to denigrrate our website http://HaigReport.com, [while giving us a backhanded compliment - in fact it lead with that aspect - for our skill utilizing Google and other search engines].

This story had no Byline. It no doubt passed a sub-editor and Editor, but regardless enshrines the sentiments and principles of its Publisher and Principals.

Those sentiments are encapsulated in a quote from 'The Daily',
The Daily wrote: "Mr and Mrs McVean are vilified on the websites, amid diatribes on fraud and corruption within government and judicial ranks."

Who is the Publisher APN News & Media Limited [APN]:
We quote from the site http://www.ketupa.net/apn.htm#holdings /.
