Writing in February 2007, Margaret Simons notes:

"Tomorrow the internet-based journal New Matilda, launched two and a half years ago amidst great idealism, is almost certain to be sold to the mysterious Duncan Turpie for the princely sum of just $10.
"The chairman of the New Matilda board, Jesuit priest Michael Kelly, said this morning that New Matilda had been facing closure until Turpie stepped in with an offer to keep subsidising it.
"New Matilda was launched two and a half years ago on the back of donations from a bunch of well-meaning lefties, led by former senior public servant John Menadue AO. Others included former Labor Minister John Button, publisher Hilary McPhee, speechwriter to Labor luminaries, Graham Freudenberg and businesswoman Janet Holmes a Court." [3]
