He’s been editor-in-chief and on the editorial board of his magazine, yet that direct editorial influence by a rich Leftist media boss does not bother the Left that’s now enraged that the free-marketer Rinehart should be trying to have less than 15 per cent of Fairfax – a vastly smaller share that what Stokes has of Seven.
Read the lot.
