Corporate sponsorship rejected
The Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ) at the University of Technology Sydney, fearing that corporate involvement cannot but taint, objects to Exxon Mobil's sponsorship of the 2010 Walkley Media Conference.
Antony Loewenstein, an honorary research apointee at the ACIJ, is leading the charge:
I’ve signed [the protest letter], as have many other leading reporters.
Loewenstein is not a leading reporter and never will be, ever: being an anti-Israel, atheist Jew is his only claim to fame.
