I think this raises a serious ethical concern. One would have to be utterly naive to imagine that the journalists employed by Fairfax Media are free to say negative things about Earth Hour – or about environmentalism in general. Yet Australia’s recent Independent Inquiry into the Media and Media Regulation report makes no mention whatsoever of Earth Hour in its 474 pages.No chance of a harsh word from the Silly's Catastropharian in Chief Ben Cubby, who must had a lovely time applauding his intellectual equals. A word of warning, Ben. With Fairfax's finances in such terrible shape, don't speak too highly of the 16-year-old winners. They might make very cheap replacements.
