Hockey wins vs Fairfax reports:

TREASURER Joe Hockey has won $200,000 in a defamation case against Fairfax Media.

The Federal Court today decided Fairfax had defamed Mr Hockey with a newsstand poster and two tweets relating to a story it published on May 5, 2014, with the headline ‘Treasurer for Sale’.

They will need to pay Mr Hockey $120,000 in damages for the poster and $80,000 for the tweets.

I’m glad Hockey won. I thought that way Fairfax framed their story was reprehensible.
