Responsible Reporting

Tuesday, 3 December 2002

News Limited's main site is downplaying unspecified reports of a secret training camp for islamic extremists in "remote forests outside Melbourne". This is highly responsible behaviour in the current climate of generalised uncertainty when we are enjoined to be "alert but not alarmed". The last thing we need is casual panic-mongering based on the claims of "well-placed intelligence sources" and other nebulous sources. Anyone who is interested in reading the original report will find it here, at the web-site of that eminently responsible journal of public record, the Melbourne Hun.
