To ALL UFU MEMBERS
UFU REQUEST INVESTIGATION
INTO THE HERALD SUN DUE TO ITS CONTINUING UNTRUTHFUL ATTACKS ON FIREFIGHTERS
As advised in our previous Bulletin, we instructed our lawyers to write to both the Editor of the Herald Sun and Commissioner Lapsley regarding the grossly inaccurate and offensive articles published by the Herald Sun.
In addition to this we also filed a lengthy and detailed complaint to the Press Council of Australia regarding the conduct of specific Herald Sun journalists. In addition to seeking an apology and a retraction, we will be seeking a finding that the comments published by the Herald Sun have breached the Council’s Standards of Practice.
We will keep you informed of the outcome of these complaints.
