Old Daily News building now turned into Community News Group

Community News Group 50% owned by Murdoch's Sunday Times and 50% West Australian Newspapers (WAN)
to keep their joint stranglehold on WA lucrative advertising dollars.


WESTERN AUSTRALIA’S MUCH LOVED
Weekend News is set to be relaunched as
an Australia-wide weekly newspaper.

It will have inserts for each state and a worldwide presence on the Internet.

The Daily News-Weekend News was mothballed in the early 1990s by the then owners of
the West Australian Newspaper group (WAN), because a former Trade Practices Commissioner
 Bob Baxt told them that it was a monopoly to control both newspapers. But instead of selling
this valuable asset to an independent operator, WAN ran up millions of dollars worth of bills
and put it into liquidation.

The Weekend News Publishing Group (WNPG), owner of the Weekend News masthead,
 is offering 100 free shares in International News Limited (INL), to each of the first
 100,000 subscribers to the Australian Weekend News. Also for a limited time, advertisers
 who spend $500 upwards will receive FREE, the equivalent value in $1 INL shares.
The expectation is that INL will float on the Australian Stock Market as a public company
 in January 2002.

INL will also receive 50 per cent of the profits from the marketing rights of the McNaturals
 name by setting up McNaturals health food outlets, growing McNaturals fruit and vegetables
 and providing McNaturals Healing Juices and mineral spring water.

McNaturals promotes the greater use of naturally grown raw fruit and vegetables in your diet.

Environmentally Friendly

The other 50 per cent of McNaturals profits from the use of the McNaturals’ name will go to
McNaturals Education Foundation Ltd - a seperate non profit organisation set up to teach
environmentally friendly practices and provide naturally grown food the way nature intended,
with no chemicals or pesticides.
INL will publish the Australian Weekend News, and will be a broad-based media company
covering all facets of media. As well, the first 20,000 subscribers will receive an option to take
 up 2000 $1 INL shares, before the float of INL on the Australian Stock Exchange.
 A prospectus will be provided for those wishing to take up the option to buy 2000 $1 INL shares.
The aim is to provide ordinary Australians with their own newspaper, to be the people’s voice.
Today, Australians receive their news mainly from Rupert Murdoch and Kerry Packer backed
organisations.
According to a financial estimate, the Murdoch and Packer companies supply 49 per cent of
Australia’s information.
The Australian Weekend News will contain international, national and a local news insert for
each state.
Issues concerning women, children and minority groups will be given a fair airing, which is sadly
lacking in many publications.
In the opinion of the owners of WNPG the low level of women and children’s issues dealt with
 in the press reflects the lack of women in key positions in Australian organisations.
To balance its content, the Australian Weekend News will be co-edited by a male and female editor.
As part of the promotional drive, the Australian Weekend News/INL Group has taken
 over Health Arena newspaper, a well established integrated health publication that
has a keen readership throughout WA. The May-June edition of Health Arena contains
an Australian Weekend News liftout as a lead-up to the re-launch. Be sure to pick up
your May-June Health Arena, or subscribe to the Australian Weekend News and
 have it mailed to you. You won’t be sorry, because it will be a rare collectors item.
The Rigby family promised a Paul Rigby cartoon all the way from Paul’s retirement retreat
in Florida, USA and a Peter Rigby article from his retreat in Margaret River.

Fearless Forum

ACCORDING TO Angela Chan, the Chairperson of the Ethnic Communities Council of NSW,

ownership of a major television network and newspaper by the same company could amount to

"thought control… it's frightening".

Jock Given, the director of the Communications Law Centre in Sydney, says: "If you have both the

top rated TV network and the number two publisher, and line that up with what Murdoch already controls,

then I think that this is very disturbing."

It has been observed that if ownership of the media were to become overtly concentrated, new ideas might

not even be formed, much less expressed.

Democracy is a process that relies on new ideas being available to be passed around, chewed over and modified.

If new ideas do not emerge, Democracy dies.

Worldwide, most print media publications are bland, politically correct and have become

monopolistic institutions.

Where are the crusading investigative reporters and colourful columnists?

The fire in the belly of the newspaper industry has gone out. It has been dampened by corporate overlords.

The press has forgotten how to provide interesting, entertaining news which is why it is haemorrhaging

via the Internet.

It seems editors and journalists working on hardcopy newspapers are no longer allowed to be provocative,

for fear of being given their termination notice. In addition, owners expect editors to know what is wanted

of them without being told.

The average reader sees major newspapers as effectively controlled by multi-national corporations

and big business, who are behind the scenes involved with supporting one or another political party,

and/or one big business entity.

It is becoming rare to see in the print media truly independent investigative journalism.

In this regard, Australia has a much more deep-rooted problem. This is partly caused by Australia's isolation,

the power bases whom effectively control Australia taking advantage of the easygoing nature of Australians,

and partly because there simply is no truly independent mainstream media outlet in Australia.

What is urgently needed is independent press where average Australians can have a say when they

feel their country is not being run on a fair and equitable basis by those who have assumed control of

the legal and political system – a system that is meant to belong to all Australians, not just a select and

powerful few.

High demand for shares in new floats
by Marvyn Moore 

In 1997 a massive $28 billion was devoured in equities by small investors, who have now realised that

there is more instant and retrievable profit in taking up parcels of shares in new promising share floats

before listing.

This option has been recognised as being better than investing in real estate, and as a result,

the stock market is poised for exciting new growth, according to a report by Macquarie Equities.

The report predicted that support fro small share issues would see an 88 percent increase in

private sector floats from 1996 onwards, when they were $4.1 billion.

Robert Credaro, Kim Ta and Roy Shackley, analysts for the McQuarie report describe retail investors as

"very resilient".

The now famous Telstra Float saw the appearance in the market of thousands of average small investors,

most of whom were buying shares for the first time.

These investors made instant profits on the day the Telstra shares were listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.

The difference between these profits and profits made in real estate is that they are instantly retrievable

with a simple phone call to your stock broker.

INL expected to float at good price

One of the reasons it is expected that the International News Limited (INL) shares will float at a good price

is that none of the big institutional investors will be able to buy any large parcels of shares before the float.

They will need to line up with ordinary people to subscribe to the Australian Weekend News, and be within

the first 20,000 subscribers in order to receive their option to take up 2000 $1 shares.

This will frustrate big institional investors who will end up having to try to buy the large shareholdings

they would like to own in INL after the float from the ordinary people at a price the ordinary people are

prepared to sell to them - if they want to sell their shares at all.

Big institutional investors spend more than $3 billion on new share floats  each year and like to buy shares

in all media floats.

It will take only a few of these institutional investors to place buying orders at best after the float of INL

on the stock exchange to make the shares in INL go to a fair price.

It is expected that INL shares will go above the $5 price West Australian Newspapers Ltd sells for,

because they will be tightly held with no large parcels of shares available for sale on the market.

Share prices are set by supply and demand and if the demand is high, with few shares available to

supply that demand, then the price must rise.

For this reason we urge readers to subscribe to the Australian Weekend News and be the first 20,000

who will receive a prospectus and an option for the purchase of 2000 $1 shares in the float.

Win a block of land in Collie

All who subscribe will receive a card that they will be able to use for discounts at various WA businesses.

A list of these businesses will be supplied with the card.

Subscribers' names will also go into a draw for the prize of a residential block of land in Collie,

just 30 minutes drive from the City of Bunbury, in WA South West.

 

The way we were

New Shares Rocket in Record Debut
DAILY NEWS 1969,
PERTH, WA:

Kia Ora Gold Corporation fully paid (25 cents) shares hit $5.50 in their stock exchange debut today.

It was the most spectacular share opening in memory.

It dwarfed the records of the Consolidated Gold Fields of Australia and Hamersley Holding debuts,

which make history on the stock exchanges.

Fortunes were made within minutes of the Adelaide and Sydney exchanges opening. Trading in other

stocks was closed for 15 minutes in Adelaide while brokers bid frantically.

The 10 per cent paid shares hit $5.30 in the opening burst.

In Adelaide Kia Ora's 32-year-old executive director, Brian Hill, is reputed to hold more than 300,000 shares,

a paper profit of more than $1.5 million.

It is believed that one of the biggest gains to come from the Kia Ora float was by a Sydney stockbroker who

could have made about $1 million in paper profit.

Queensland senator Ian Woods - who still regards a bicycle as the best means of transport today -

made a $250,000 paper profit in just one minute flat.

He held just over 50,000 Kia Ora shares.

The company's brilliant opening stemmed from its piggings in the nickel hot spot.

Among its wide spread WA nickel leases, is one bordering the Poseidon nickel strike at Windarra,

more than 100 miles north of Kalgoorlie.

Kia Ora has also pegged and applied for 11 claims at Pioneer, the other hot nickel spot, and has claims

in the Mount Keith area.

Rigby returns to back a cause

WORLD FAMOUS West Australian cartoonist Paul Rigby has agreed to provide

the Australian Weekend News with a special collectors item cartoon which will appear next issue.

Paul Rigby was the cartoonist whose art graced the back page of the Daily and Weekend News for many years.

He saw himself as "the people's cartoonist", using his talent for drawing and humour to bring to light

the common person's view of the games played by powerbrokers.

In addition to Paul's cartoon, his son Pete will write an article for the collectors' edition.

Be sure to get your subscription in today!

In relaunching the Weekend News as the Australian Weekend News, we are endeavouring to put the power

of the press into the hands on the people.

In WA advertisers have little choice about where to spend their money - and advertising rates continue to climb.

The West Australian, for instance, promised economy of scale after the closure of the Daily-Weekend News,

but has regularly increased its ad rates.

The Australian Weekend News will provide a reasonably priced alternative, that will be owned by

the Australian people.  Ed.

Media giants reap $10m from WA each weekend

by Marvyn Moore 

Do West Australians want to keep ploughing money into giant media bodies?

It is estimated that in WA alone, each weekend more than $1 million is spent on
the West Australian Newspaper and the Sunday Times, and advertising revenue in
both papers would amount to about $9 million.

Independents fight on

Five brave independent newspapers serve various areas of Perth and Fremantle and each week
they fight against the might of the suburban Community Newspapers for advertising dollars.

Because the Community Newspapers are 50 per cent owned by the West and 50 per cent
by the Murdoch group, the independents face a situation in which the lion's share of advertising
is out of reach.

A reliable source in the media industry claims that the Sunday Times and the West Australian
have cornered the real estate advertising market, as only a small degree of this advertising appears
each week in the Community Newspapers. According to the source, a directive regarding this matter
 has apparently been handed down by the Sunday Times and the West Australian.

An advertising manager from one of these independent newspapers said there was the constant
fear of being extinguished.

1980s monopoly ruling

In the late 1980s, a former Trade Practices Commissioner Bob Baxt ruled that
the West Australian's ownership of the Daily-Weekend News constituted a monopoly.
But the owners of the West Australian have kept their grip on WA's advertising dollars.

First, some time after Mr Baxt's ruling, the then owners of the West Autralian put
 the Daily-Weekend News into liquidation, throwing many people out of work.

Second, it edged into obtaining control of the lucrative suburban newspaper advertising dollars.

If Mr Baxt were to look at the situation as it is today, would he view it as a monopoly?

Would he be surprised to see that the newspaper bosses have avoided tipping the scale of
 ownership of just 51 per cent of Community News to ensure they cannot be ruled as monopolising
 the industry? The West Australian owns 50 per cent of Community News while Murdoch owns
 the Sunday Times, which owns the other 50 per cent of Community News.

This means neither can legally be ruled to be in control.

As it stands, these two media giants maintain their stranglehold on WA's lucrative advertising market
and control much of what West Australian's read.

Many ordinary West Australians view the West Australian and the Sunday Times as monolithic media institutions that make a lot of money, charge too much for advertising and have lost the art of being entertaining.

When a West Australian is asked "why do you buy one or other of the weekend pape
rs" the reply often is: "I choose one of the weekend papers just for the colour TV Guide!".
Another frequent reply is "I buy a weekend paper only for the classified ads".

The Australian Weekend News interviewed a well established advertising agent in Adelaide recently who said that in his opinion most Australian buy newspapers for the classified ads, rather than for entertainment or editorial.

The Weekend News/INL Publishing Group has managed to wrestle the
108 Weekend News Masthead from WAN and is able to relaunch it as the Austarlian Weekend News.

New cartoon characters have been created for the Australian Weekend News.
Members of famous cartoonist Paul Rigby's family have offered to help develop them for
use in a new cartoon.

A "greenie" character, Erf the Worm, will be hidden inside the cartoon for readers to find,
as in the old days when they had to find Paul Rigby's man and dog.

Paul Rigby reminisces

The Australian Weekend News spoke to Paul Rigby before he went into semi-retirement
after years of working for the New York Daily.

He reminisced about his many years as a feature cartoonist with the Daily-Weekend News, recalling how the paper was run like one big happy family.

The West Australian, which had controlled it for 108 years, managed to give it the status of the "poor sister" paper, while the Saturday West made all the money.

This resulted in keeping others from gaining a strong foothold on the weekend newspaper
advertising market and ensured that hte West did not have to share its yearly profits of more
 than $100 million.

This profit is now shared by the West Australian and the Murdoch controlled mastehead,
the Sunday Times.

Today, the old Daily-Weekend News building on the corner of Roe and Lake Street has been
turned into the Community Newspaper group's headquarters.

Blood, sweat and tears

It was within these walls that much blood sweat and tears of the staff to the Daily-Weekend News
was expended.

The old Daily-Weekend News used to print Paul Rigby's cartoon on the back page, with his famous
 man and dog hidden in it somewhere. West Australians used to pick up the paper, turn it over,
and read Rigby's cartoon first.

In the suburbs, the topic around dinner was often whatever Rigby was tilting at that day.

The Daily-Weekend News was always lively, interesting and entertaining.

It is with this standard in mind that the relaunching
of the Australian Weekend News will be undertaken.

                                     Poem of the Month
                      God and Money

                          God put us on this earth to make it a better place,
                         All we have done is turn it into a rat race.
                          We get up in the morning and drive our cars like mad,
                        We pollute the air and kill the trees, which makes me very sad,
                         No matter how much God gives us,
                         We still want more and more,
                         There does not seem to be a number that we will settle for.

                         You ask people to help you and 
                         They look at you aghast,
                           And walk quickly past.
                          But when you go through the pearly gates,
                         With your money in hand,
                         God will gently take it off you,
                        And whisper "everybody's equal in this land".
