A few words from today’s face of the day David Seymour about the Media.

Last week I spoke at a charity debate to raise money for the families of journalists killed for doing their job in dangerous countries. This week the so called International Consortium of International Journalists have put thousands of people in similar countries in danger of extortion and persecution by publishing details of their financial affairs, searchable on the internet.

If the boot was on the other foot and a group of lawyers had stolen and released thousands of journalists’ file notes and recordings then put them on the internet, endangering journalists in unsafe countries along the way, the New Zealand media would go nuts. Unfortunately, some of the same journalists who were at last weeks’ fundraiser are gleefully rooting though stolen information with little regard for the privacy and safety of vulnerable people because they think there is something inherently sinister in people being wealthy and using trusts. What a shame.
