Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Sky new suppressing the far right now. Banning a Neo Nazi. :rolf:

Mind you they didn't have a problem with One Nation preferencing a Neo Nazi ahead of Labor in Longman.

Classic Abbott. Tony is obviously totally free of any constraints to speak with any degree of consistency across issues. “There is a difference between plebiscites that decide, and plebiscites that discredit,” he said. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/aug/05/tony-abbott-says-shortens-...

Re: Gibson/ Epi Basses

First Epi Vintage Pros now on eBay in Oz- about $1200 (less with the current eBay offer). I reckon they will come down a bit further on that too. Best TBirds you can buy IMHO. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/n1IAAOSwFdpbSEnY/s-l1600.jpg https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Epiphone-THUNDERBIRD-VINTAGE-PRO-BAS...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

But it does seem that Buzzfeed are shockingly lax in terms of fact checking, and fairly inexperienced, or lazy, in developing more complex stories. Still, there's potentially work there for defamation lawyers, and risk management will teach them lessons that journo school clearly didn't. I am not d...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

An interesting point about natural justice and how low the media has sunk in this country. One does not normally expect to read in the national media workplace complaints one has lodged in confidence, particularly while the process is ongoing. When questioned on Twitter about the complainants' knowl...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Malcolm reckons there is plenty see here (Emma Hussar) Malcom also reckons that Shorten has known about this for some time and should have done something about it. Goes to show that Shorten and Husar don't get to experience the same low threshold of credibility as Turnbull and Joyce, or Turnbull an...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Malcolm reckons there is plenty see here (Emma Hussar) but nothing to see in handing out of $444 Million to "save the reef" without any tender process to an organisation with more bankers and mining execs on the board than actual staff. Of ourse he does. No wonder people get cynical. https://www.the...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

$443M for The Reef to an organisation with 6 full time staff. Captain's call? Don't worry it's OK. The organisation's board has banks and mining companies on it. Anna Marsden, the managing director of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, told a Senate inquiry on Monday the organisation was offered the...
