Panama Papers, the Guptas and financial journalists

Ryk van Niekerk is a highly-regarded financial journalist and editor of Moneyweb, which we have always believed to be a reliable, independent source of critical financial information. Readers may therefore be surprised to note that we have, sadly, found it necessary to pull him up (see "When is a freebie something else?" in this issue) for accepting a (costly) “fun freebie” from Absa.

Read what follows and you might just understand why we are so protective of the independence of the few financially competent journalists that remain to keep a critical eye on those commercial interests that affect our lives at every turn, none more so than our banks.
