John B Fairfax and Cameron O’Reilly are backing a new digital investigative journalism venture. The name of the venture, which will work inside the Crikey website, will be made public before it is formally launched in April. It is intended that the new venture will make its money solely from subscription sales, rather than advertising. Fairfax has been involved in the print media for five decades, while the O’Reilly family controlled Independent News & Media for more than 35 years.
