A reporter from the Australian Jewish News (Melbourne) was present at the seminar and wrote an account for the press.
One of the main reasons I began this blog was because of the frustration at being misquoted in certain parts of the media. Nothing seems to have happened to warrant a serious review of that position.
This post presents what journalist Peter Kohn said happened that afternoon. In the following posts I will present what I said, what the hosts of the event wrote in response to the media article and, finally, the account of the afternoon made by David Schutz from the Ecumenical and Interfaith Commission. I am doing this because it is so important to ensure accuracy. Inaccurate reporting, done for whatever reason, is bad reporting. Presenting the series of posts in chronological order helps establish what in fact was said and by whom.
This is a copy of the article by Peter Kohn in the Australian Jewish News published on 4 May 2012.
