Money Magazine Au - 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....
