MEDIA RELEASE | 27 July 2015
Council Chair to speak at Melbourne Press Club

The Chair of the Australian Press Council, Professor David Weisbrot AM, will deliver an address to the Melbourne Press Club on 6 August at 12:30 pm. His topic: Adventures in Media Counter-errorism - the challenges of heading up the Press Council in an era of technological convergence, social change and stifling surveillance.
He will also take questions from the audience.
Prof Weisbrot began his term as Chair of the Australian Press Council on 1 March of this year, and leads the Council into its 40th year of operation.
The Melbourne Press Club notes about Professor Weisbrot: “He has proved an energetic and outspoken supporter of journalism at a time of great challenges to the industry. He has branded new data retention laws as 'far too intrusive', called for an overhaul of defamation laws in the wake of the Joe Hockey-Fairfax case and urged a more collegial relationship between the Press Council and the media. He has also indicated that he wants to teach the old watchdog new tricks in education and advocacy.”
Book tickets here by Tuesday 4 August 2015. Numbers limited, bookings are essential. Download the Melbourne Press Club flyer here.
