IA's Jacksonville investigation picked up by ABC and AAP

By | | comments
After over a month of detailed reporting by Peter Wicks and Independent Australia into Jacksonville – Kathy Jackson / HSU scandal – some of the investigation's information has been published today in an article by the ABC's chief political correspondent, Simon Cullen — along with a specific acknowledgement of Independent Australia as the source.

IA congratulates the ABC for being the first mainstream media organisation to follow-up on our detailed investigations.

Please also see our dedicated "Jacksonville" page, which details all our investigations and significant other material.

For those awaiting the next instalment in the Jacksonville saga, IA has received new revelations and will be publishing #14 in the series sometime this week.



UPDATE 27/6/12: This story was picked up by AAP and has gone via the wires to every mainstream media outlet and been published all over Australia.

Unfortunately, AAP entitled the story "fresh claims", though we have been releasing this same information for six weeks. Also strange was AAP saying IA had only published the documents "in part". Given IA has published hundreds of pages of leaked documents, we would like to know which document AAP has used in its story that we haven't already published, since their piece seems to include no information not already brought to light in our 13 investigative stories on this matter.
