Australian journalist writes about corrupt real estate spruiking all while being a criminal herself. Meet moneymagazine.com.au author Anne Lampe

So you want to be a journalist in Australia, honesty wont take you far in the alcohol fueled ' pay for propaganda' that is the Australian journo culture Its a dirty business, Aussie journos are a corrupt, mostly drunk and dishonest bunch, who sell out. Anne Lampe is a classic example just because she use to write for a major newspaper ( the rather corrupt SMH) in their usually groggy state they think that given them the right to play God.  Anne Lampe consistently used her jobs (each one of them for direcr personal gain) read about her and the NRMA debunk “One of the revolutionists was Roger Parks, Ms Lampe’s partner. Ms Lampe continued to cover the case for The Sydney Morning Herald. Though her connection and the obvious conflict of interest were well known to many in the media it was not, and apparently until today has not been made public, though it would appear to be in contravention of the Sydney Morning Herald’s own code of ethics.” If she was a lawyer she would have been disbarred. If she was a politician, a similar fate. Or if a funds trader she would've been pinched for insider trading and sent to jail… So what gives journalists like Anne Lampe the right to play God, judge and executioner to benefit her own personal interests and gains. There is a code of ethics that needs to apply… but apparently not to her. She should be made accountable for all the lies and misleading fabricated propaganda that she usually spins in order to make a quick buck by masquerading as a reporter. want a pay for write up reporter, Anne Lampe is your girl. Sadly in Australian journalism she is the norm!

AnneLampe Journalist Australia

SMH Journalist used her profession for the fulfillment of ulterior motives Journalism and freedom of media is the key in the globalized world. But the bright lights and great margins in the world of business and media are decisive at times. The case of Nick Whitlam is one such example. Whitlam has been the victim of this expression in media that reached new heights in abusing and vilifying him to such an extent that he stood down as CEO of NRMA, when he was its greatest manager. Whitlam was responsible for the successful demutualization of MRMA Insurance which brought great profit margins for the stake holders. As a successful business himself, he was the chairperson of the board but some people like Roger Parker wanted him out. Hence he and his wife Anne Lampe, ex SMH journalist targeted him as their number one enemy. Anne Lampe wrote articles about Whitlam, defaming him in the countries' top newspapers. She never had a successful career and hence took the path of yellow journalism in order to make her space in the circles. She tried to play a part of the whistle blower but it should be understood the she was involved in illegally getting access to information to which she was not authorized. Not only this, but reports are available that she and some other journalists like her twisted the facts for their false reports. An example of one such interview is available on the following link: http://www.crikey.com.au/2004/10/14/nick-whitlam-sticks-it Also Anne has been reported to be an alcoholic writer hence raising the credibility on her own personality as well on the work ethics of the company, Channel 9, that employed her. Whitlam further discussed the case in his autobiography ‘Still Standing”. The issue does not end here. If you want to read about the decision of the court then CLICK  https://www.walk.com.au/pedestriancouncil/page.asp?pageid=911 Also the dehumanizing of Whitlam on the hands of such journalists like Anne lead to his fall from grace. What else could get worse when the dignified and responsible professions like journalism are being humiliated by the inclusion of such black sheep. Anne Lampe and others must be charged for the unethical and false reporting that eventually forced a businessman to give up his role as a great leader in business.

This seems similar to a phishing scam run by some website called journalist.com They use a false name ed.sherrington@***.com, and write abusive threatening emails with the aim of obtaining private financial information. Be very careful and comment here if they have been approaching you?

The entire australian journalist scene is nothing but a bunch of alcoholic, brainless drones! Please Anne Lampe is typical of her industry why they are believed or even revered as anything remotely credible is anyone's guess. For real journalism get on google and real up outside Australia....

Anne Lampe, corrupt Journo- the degradation of Journalism in Australia

Ever wonder a certain issue gains massive media coverage while another of much more value or impact is simply ignored? I know I have, researching Anne Lampe a high profile journalist with a writing career spanning 35 years – I found something very unusual. Behind many of Anne Lampe’s big time stories- where there is massive coverage on an issue there seems to be good reason for the journalist herself to be covering that story in THAT angle. The Australian Tax Office (ATO) approved an employee scheme called the employee benefit scheme issue, the person who signed off on from the ATO office was Nick Petroulias. Nick Petroulias became the target of Anne Lampe reporting and as a result of her fueling the fires it turned into a major court case costing tax payers over$10 million dollar but achieving NOTHING. It begs the question, why did Anne Lampe cover what was an insignificant taxation with such fervor, why get so fixated? Well, there is always a reason. Anne Lampe had good reason, and great personal need to squash the employee benefit scheme- she was heavily invested in it rival scheme at the time. It served her to stir up the public, the authorities and anyone else via her aggressive coverage in order to get it shut down. Anne Lampe’s coverage on the issue had nothing to do with the scheme itself; whether it was valid or otherwise- it had everything to do with her shutting down a rival that reduced her personal profits. How does Anne Lampe consistently achieve this? Well it’s the same trick the world’s best *** artists achieve- 60% truth mixed in with 40% fabricated well crafted lies- and you go omn a witch hunt as the hero, the person representing the people looking for justice; it’s the oldest trick in the book. Anne Lampe consistently uses her journalist privileges for her own personal gain and her own agenda its reported on all over the place. Someone pointed it out once, if she was a lawyer she would be disbarred, if she was a financial trader she would be done for insider trading and thrown in jail, but as a journalist who is read by millions and influences public opinion it seems she is not held accountable. Its high time that this is stopped, its high time that journalist are held accountable for every word they right, its high time that freedom of the press dones not mean freedom to *** to high heaven and get away with it. Its time that the Australian media to stop journalists like Anne Lampe from using their trade as a weapon for their own personal purposes.
