The freedom of the press still furnishes that check upon government which no constitution has ever been able to provide – Chicago Tribune.

Picture of lawless Alice served to national audience, again

The doubtlessly biggest news story in Alice Springs was when – as it is now official – the dingo took baby Azaria Chamberlain.
The Liam Jurrah story is also pretty big but there are other significant differences.
If we manage to leave aside the unspeakable stupidity of Territory officialdom, and the almost biblical pain it inflicted on the Chamberlains, we can observe that their story put The Centre, The Rock, The Alice into the public view. That had its good side. A lot more is now known about our patch.

The Jurrah media coverage, albeit much smaller in scale, was different in message, volume, speed and reach. Unless you take the show biz view that any publicity is good so long as they spell the name right, you'd have to conclude that Alice just got another hammering. ERWIN CHLANDA comments.
