Fairfax boss backs his team
March 25, 2008
THE CEO of Fairfax Media, David Kirk, has dismissed staff complaints about the treatment of journalist Gerard Noonan and expressed his "full confidence and support" in the executives who wrongly targeted him.
Kirk said the three executives ... had "principled views" about staff who "damaged the reputation of the company and its mastheads".
The important point, says the story, is that at no time had any "disciplinary" action been taken, and that a full apology had been made.
Yes, well, that would be important, wouldn't it.
