Comment on Advocate: Getting it wrong on their big day by Evelyne Roullet.

Alice Springs News is a exactly what a newspaper should have:
Integrity, vigorous standards of honesty,treating disputed issues with impartiality, providing a forum for divergent opinions, especially those differing from the paper’s editorial point of view.
Accuracy: Exerting maximum effort to print the truth, promptly correcting errors of fact for which the newspaper is responsible.
I read the Alice Springs News everyday with great pleasure. Keep up with the good work.
Responsibility: Choosing news on the basis of its significance and usefulness to the public. Avoiding purely sensational or trivial new. Respecting rights of privacy.
Leadership: Acting with courage in serving the public. Supporting efforts by public officials and individuals to do good works in the community. Serving as a constructive critic of government at all levels.
