first_img … we have a small favour to ask. More people, like you, are reading and supporting the Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we made the choice to keep our reporting open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.The Guardian will engage with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Guardian journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism that’s open and independent. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support The Guardian from as little as $1 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

Media organisations as well as performers and volunteers must adhere to strict non-disclosure agreements as part of their attendance at ceremony rehearsals.Peters said Nine’s actions were a blatant breach of those protocols.“Someone was in the venue, took the pictures of the opening ceremony – the other 16,000 volunteers and people respected the fact we asked them not to do it – and then they put them on their news service,” he said.“That’s not what dignity’s about. That’s not what trust is about. They broke our news access rules so there has to be a consequence the same way there’s a consequence for athletes and officials.”In January the international news agency Reuters was banned from covering the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics after it transmitted photographs to its clients of the cauldron for the Games.The International Olympic Committee also revoked the media accreditation of the photographer who took the pictures.The chief executive of the Commonwealth Games Federation, David Grevemberg, said Nine’s actions were “very disappointing”.“The impact of this investment only works if we all work together,” he said.
