Story audio

Successful Australian Businessman Dick Smith made a direct challenge to News Limited’s integrity today after they refused to run his magazine advertisement in their papers. Dick Smith came to voice his concerns in Adelaide where if it's not published by News Ltd, it's not published at all.

Smith is a long time critic of the Murdoch press, but this latest snub from Australia's dominant print media company saw him take the fight to their doorstep. Dick Smith landed in Adelaide today, and staged a protest outside the Advertiser Newspapers building. Image: Dick Smith addresses his supporters/Cassandra Slaughter
