Media Watch 270513Media Watch: Disclosing the funding of think tanks

ABC1’s program investigating media and public affairs turned its attention once again to Australia’s top eight think tanks (which gratifyingly includes CPD).

Media Watch researchers put a list of searching questions to each think tank, and published the responses on its website.
