See you outside parliament on November 5…?

THE NUJ has blasted Ian Paisley’s criticism of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act being used by “lazy journalists who will not do any work” (what has got to hide?) The Tele is challenging Assembly politicians to spell out their position on freedom of information, while journalists will be taking part in an event on November 5 (remember, remember…) at Stormont to ‘stand up for journalism’ in the face of a government that would prefer it if awkward questions just weren’t asked.
