Downer dishes on independent media

Alexander Downer is a South Australian political cornerstone. His family’s history in politics was continued when he was elected to the seat of Mayo and subsequently served as the Liberal Foreign Affairs minister for 11 years, the longest in Australian history.

After leaving politics in 2008, Downer has continued to be involved in politics taking jobs that utilise his strength and experience in foreign affairs, working for the United Nations. He is also involved in the education and research of politics, serving as a guest lecturer for the University of Adelaide.

Tim Brunero spoke with him about the need for media to remain free and independent.
