The history of the Great Kickback Saga Row.

Did Noseweek get it all wrong? How could Noseweek have dared to suggest that a R1 million kickback from Auction Alliance might have ended up in the pockets of upright citizens such as Independent Newspapers' Cape editor-in-chief Chris Whitfield and group editor Mogsien Williams, we've been asked.

Dear Editor,

Although I disagree with your opinion of Assange and his motives, which I feel, may have at first been altruistic, but degenerated into a plethora of ego driven self-indulgence, I cannot but totally agree with your assessment of the Independent News / Auction Alliance dalliance.

So with apologies to whomever apologies need to be given, I can but paraphrase that old truism "I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"

Oh, and I too, as espoused Bob Broom, will not cancel my subscription, because Noseweek has the temerity to state an opinion that is different to my own.
