For those concerned about the fate of Channel Seven’s Naomi Robson, currently being detained by Indonesian authorities for attempting to work as a journalist while on a tourist visa, I can offer one piece of reassurance: The Age report suggests that Peter Meakin, the chief of news and current affairs for the station, is taking pains to reassure everyone that Today Tonight has no plans to deviate from its established journalistic standards. According to The Age:
He [Meakin] denied the story was an attempt to boost Today Tonight’s credibility.
“It was an attempt to get a good story,” he told ABC radio.
“We don’t decide what stories to do on the basis of journalistic credibility.”
