Fairfax witch-hunt after 'leak'

FAIRFAX Media has launched a witch-hunt for journalists who emailed embarrassing images of Rupert Murdoch murals decorating its new hi-tech "newsroom of the future" to rival newspapers.


Fairfax was severely embarrassed after decorators erected images of Mr Murdoch in the new newsroom last year, oblivious to the fact he was chairman of Fairfax's arch-rival, News Corporation, publisher of The Weekend Australian.

Dozens of photos taken by staff on mobile phones emerged from Fairfax the same day and the murals were hurriedly stripped from the walls as the media company tried to save face.,,23300055-7582,00.html?from=public_rss

It isn't like individual Fairfax journalists would join in a witch hunt themselves ... or would they?
