TESTIMONIAL: Colin Teese: Why Do I Read News Weekly?
by Colin Teese
News Weekly, October 6, 2001
Why do I support News Weekly?
Well, I'm a contributor and therefore I read my own pieces - if only to see if they read in print the way I wrote them.
News Weekly is an independent journal of opinion.
As such, it is a rare bird and deserves to be supported.
I say independent, because most of its funding comes from contributors rather than from advertising. Because of that its opinions can be, and are, delivered without fear or favour.
But they are opinions and they do have a starting point.
News Weekly stands foursquare behind Australia, behind the family, and for a fair distribution of economic wealth.
It argues that the family, and the middle class, can't survive without that.
It also believes in free enterprise and proper respect for private property, but considers that if this system is to work to the benefit of all Australians, then there is a place for a measure of government regulation.
All of these things make News Weekly worth reading and supporting.
