IA Journal

Up, up and away — with IA

By | | comments |
John Turnbull has been flying the flag for IA at the Canberra Balloon Spectacular this weekend.

John Turnbull is IA's entertainment editor — as well as an expert balloon pilot. Here he explains why he gladly offers his time, skills and knowledge pro bono to Independent Australia.

IN THIS AGE of corporate controlled newspapers and cash for comment, Independent Australia provides a fiercely independent perspective, often covering stories that other media are afraid to touch.

Subscribing to IA will help maintain this important alternative to tabloid current affairs shows and soundbite driven press, as well as providing access to a wealth of video content created specifically for IA subscribers.

Built on a bedrock of journalistic integrity and passion for the truth, IA needs your financial support to keep doing what it does best — providing a truly independent voice in the Australian media landscape. 


Support fearless independent media, like John does. Subscriptions start at just $5 a month or $50 a year and offer a great range of benefits.


Ahhh, the serenity ... the view from John's balloon in Canberra yesterday.
