|Environmental Defender Scott Sledge heads local opposition to Nightcap "Hippyland"
In a linked 2020 article by Sydney Morning Herald, the same venture is pinned to the town of Nimbin and disparaged as a "hippy commune" with sloppy, misleading reporting about the outcome of a defamation trial regarding Blogs published by Free Radical: Darwin v Norman.
The defamation charges were brought by Adrian Brennock (AB) and Phillip Dixon against journalist Gillian Norman (Gi Linda) representative of creditors who in 2016 published claims that Brennock's "development team" defrauded them in a land-share scam.
Judge Fagan determined that "folly not fraud" caused the "debacle".
To anyone well informed about the Bhula-Bhula-Nightcap scheme, both these Sydney Morning Herald articles are sad examples of badly researched yellow journalism, using the alluring "hippyland" pejorative to distract from many significant omissions and errors of fact.
