Our Mission: To promote ethical journalism, whilst offering the most useful information and resources to journalists and media students across Australia.
Respect for truth and the public's right to information are fundamental principles of journalism. Journalists describe society to itself. They convey information, ideas and opinions, a privileged role. They search, disclose, record, question, entertain, suggest and remember. They inform citizens and animate democracy. They give a practical form to freedom of expression. Many journalists work in private enterprise, but all share these public responsibilities. They scrutinise power, but also exercise it, and should be accountable. Accountability engenders trust. Without trust, journalists do not fulfil their public responsibilities (AJA Code of Ethics)

The words in the panel above have surely never been more clearly or systematically betrayed than they have with respect to the Schapelle Corby case. Indeed, a number of films and countless internet articles have been devoted to this. Some of the worst excesses in Australian journalistic history have been evident, and the reputation of Australian journalism has been damaged internationally. We have therefore launched an investigative project, intended to explore how this has occurred, what has gone wrong, and who is responsible for the underlying agenda. It is a living project, in which all ethical journalists have a key role to play. See: The Schapelle Corby Media Project. Since launching this project, the work itself was taken forward by The Expendable Project, whose findings regarding the Australian media were absolutely horrific. These can be found on the media section of their website
