good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are SBS chief political corro Anne Henderson, the West Australian bureau chief Katina Curtis, and ABC host Patricia Karvelas.
the interview is with opposition Senator Bridget McKenzie, who was once sacked from cabinet for breaching *ministerial standards of the Morrison government*. Her bloke, Simon Benson, knew about the five extra Morrison ministries and kept it from the public #Insiders
opening spiel: the Liberal Party goes after Labor but ends with one of its own senators “mired in scandal”. Speers says the Coalition “strategy” was “always going to be risky”. This minimising trash. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Guardian Aus exec editor Lenore Taylor, murdoch political editor Samantha Maiden and AFR senior corro Jacob Greber. The interview is with Aged Care minister Anika Wells.
opening spiel: the economy slows to a crawl and fears of a recession. Interest rates up. These are cited as independent events, which is false. #Insiders
Speers then launches into the murdoch campaign against anyone who supports rape victims. He calls this “the opposition”, omitting the fact that the Liberals are trailing along behind the murdoch outlets. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are 9fax (smh/Age) culture news editor Osman Faruqi, murdoch political editor Samantha Maiden and 9fax(smh/Age) chief corro David Crowe. The interview is with Greens housing spokespo Max Chandler Mather.
opening spiel: like Dutton, Speers claims that we are all “challenged” by the BRS verdict, a lie. Lots of people already knew the military and the particularly the SES is a viciously violent and racist outfit. #Insiders
stay 2 of the spiel is how PwC makes its squillions. Another feigned head scratching routine. Again, plenty of people know these firms enrich themselves on the public purse for the benefit of a wealthy elite. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are TripleJ political reporter Shalailah Medhora, murdoch political editor Clare Armstrong and 9fax(afr)political editor Phil Coorey. The interview is with opposition foreign affairs spokesman Simon Birmingham.
opening spiel: a year since the election. Navigating great powers does not get easier, Speers tells us, that the prime minister has “discovered” this power thing. #Insiders
the Quad, and the Biden cancellation. Nobody seems to recall Obama cancelled his trip here to purportedly sort out a BP oil spill. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn, 9fax (AFR) columnist Jennifer Hewett, and 9fax (smh/age) economics corro Shane Wright. The interview is with Treasurer Jim Chalmers.
hard to please everyone, opens Speers. He repeats the lies and greedy sentiment we get from the Coalition who claim to represent a “middle Australia” with no self -respect and wants endless government handouts. #Insiders
Speers then repeats the false framing about help for the poorest people. The montage features a lot of Angus Taylor. Whining Hume gets a run on her chosen constituency, the whining demanding handout-happy “middle Australia”. #Insiders

good morning👑happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC radio host Patricia Karvelas, 9fax columnist Sean Kelly and AFR senior corro Jacob Gerber. The interview is with shadow treasurer Angus Taylor.
opening spiel: budgets are about choices. Speers says, as he did last week, that we will find out about Labor Party priorities on budget night. Labor wants to do it all, he says, which is not true. #Insiders
budget editorialising. Surplus v structural deficit. The tax change on gas production, which I missed. Is this a montage? Karvelas voice over, Chalmers jogging. Gallagher saying strong a lot. Hume posturing. Lowe on inflation. #Insiders

#FTXUS Analysis - Thread 3
Following on from yesterday. Todays thread will focus on payments to #insiders made in the last 12 months prior to bankruptcy. Every time I look through the docs...I'm just amazed how spellbindly outrageous this whole shit show is.
In 12 months just over $25m was paid to insiders. I've summarised by quarter. 48% of payments went to undisclosed parties but since they are insiders and SBF only clipped a lazy $500k in his name...lets assume its him. Image
The stand out insider is the former CFTC commissioner #markwetjen who was paid $3.7million Image

good morning ☀️ happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are dailyaus journo Tom Crowley, murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, and murdoch columnist Peter van Onselen. The interview is with Finance Minister and Minister for Women Katy Gallagher.
opening spiel: reviews of the RBA and defence got lots of coverage; reviews on women and “helping the poor” are a headache for the government. #Insiders
the government has not rushed to accept recommendations of “its own handpicked advisory panels”. The single parent payment recs are in the womens advisory - for the obvious reason - and #RaiseTheRate is in the poverty committee recs. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday.
Today on #Insiders are TSP senior corro Karen Middleton, 9fax (Age) Indigenous affairs journo Jack Latimore and murdoch journo Clare Armstrong. The interview is with Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price.
this thread will not be amplifying federal Liberal Party/Country Liberal Party/National Party/Coalition lies. #Insiders
opening spiel: lost a by-election, lost a shadow minister, so Dutton headed to Alice Springs to open a “new” (well canvassed extraction strategy) political brawl. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC radio host Raf Epstein, 9fax (smh/Age) columnist Niki Savva and 9fax (AFR) politician corro Phil Coorey. The interview is with LOTO Peter Dutton.
not sure when the ABC will cut to #Insiders but right now we are live-streaming a PM and Doyle presser from the seat of Aston.
okay here we go. Opening spiel: “Labor makes by-election history by” - wait for it - “taking a prize Liberal seat”. They still can not compute that no seat belongs to a political party.

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC referendum corro Dan Bourchier, 9fax (AFR) columnist Jennifer Hewett and 9fax (smh/Age) senior politics corro David Crowe. The interview is with federal Attorney General Mark Dreyfus.
reminder - TO LABOR - that the smh editorialised for Perottet, all corporate media outlets campaigned for the Coalition, and John Howard was exhumed as usual.
opening spiel: Chris Minns wins. Yet another defeat for the Liberals. Continental red-out. Speers shoe-horns a “Peter Dutton is being warned” into the spiel but not who is doing this warning. Perhaps it is Bevan. #Insiders

boringest booth ever no pics
we did get a transphobe. He shouted at me that I can not even tell him what a foimoile is and then shouted at the indistinguishable Liberal and Labor dudes that they could not tell him what a foimoile or a moile is either.
then the Liberal dude put on a wide eyed act and said does anyone know what that was about so I explained that the transphobic voter had bought what the Liberal Party candidate selected by Morrison and Perrottet for Warringah last year was selling and surely he remembered.

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC 730 senior politics corro Laura Tingle, 9fax (smh/Age) international editor Peter Hartcher and murdoch foreign editor Greg Sheridan. The interview is with deputy PM and defence minister Richard Marles.
opening spiel: defending Australia, helping the US, is China a threat. #Insiders
we will not get our first nuclear submarine for a decade? A few decades? Speers repeats “defend strike” sloganeering, repeats the job spruiking from the government. Coalition warmongering is “bipartisanship” while facts from Keating are Labor disunity. #Insiders

@ABCaustralia @abcnews
#Insiders regularly breaches Appendix 4 Code of Practice & associated standards; In relation to the way climate energy & political parties are represented. Misinformation disinformation bias & preference for political parties are all regularly breached. ImageImageImage
I'll be keeping a running log of all these breaches.
It's pointless making a formal complaint, as breaches related to these issues are cultural, normative and any formal complaint is treated as a territorial game by the editorial 'keeper'.
I suggest listening to Matthew England Naomi Oreskes talking about the way media and government partakes in "status quo bias" to normalise climate denial misinformation & disinformation;

22 minute mark;…

good morning☀️happy Sunday! On #Insiders today are Saturday Paper senior corro Karen Middleton, ABC radio host Patricia Karvelas, and 9fax (AFR) corro Jacob Greber. The interview is with shadow Treasurer Angus Taylor.
opening spiel: “a super row” great here we go. Yet more public time on those 88K multimillionaires. Speers says the “sales pitch was messy” - thanks, newsroom bosses for prioritising millionaires - and “the opposition went into overdrive”. #Insiders
the montage, like all the coverage of this miniscule section of the population - all multimillionaires - is about building a Br0KEn Pr0miSeS narrative on behalf of wealthy tories. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC Indigenus Affairs editor Bridget Brennan, murdoch politics reporter Clare Armstrong, and Canberra Rimes columnist Professor Mark Kenny. The interview is with Climate Change and Energy minister Chris Bowen. Image
btw my connection is highly likely to drop out today.
opening spiel: tax breaks for the 1% could be wound back, which “Carrie’s political risk” - yes the “risk” of a media campaign for inheritance handouts. #Insiders

Linda Reynolds' interview with The Oz contradicts her official statement at the time.

Reynolds recollection of events is that it was "...prior to one question time..."

It was well prior, Reynolds did not attend the Senate at all that day.
#auspol #insiders
She refers to not knowing whether she attended QT or not.

Her official statement at the time said she was admitted to Canberra Hospital in the morning.

Question Time is on in the afternoon

QT started at 2pm on 24 Feb 2021
#auspol #insiders…
At 2:00 pm 24 Feb 2021 Senator Birmingham made a statement to the Senate.

The Safeguard Mechanism is not a good climate policy. It is not designed to drive emissions reductions. If implemented the Safeguard risks locking in INCREASED emissions. Not implementing it will actually have negligible impact.
🧵 #auspol #insiders
The overwhelming impression seems to be that the Safeguard is designed to drive decarbonisation. It's not. It's an industry policy designed to give regulatory cover to fossil fuels and to channel private funding to carbon offset developers. 1/
The government NEEDS the carbon offset industry to be successful and has said it WILL be successful. Carbon offsets are a way to say that farmers, Indigenous rangers and conservation groups are being funded without the govt having to fund them itself. 2/…

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are guardian aus politics editor Katharine Murphy, ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn, and 9fax (AFR) politics corro Phil Coorey. The interview is with federal Treasurer Dr Jim Chalmers.
opening spiel: orthodox and wrong economic statements about inflation and unemployment. The political fallout of an “independent” RBA. #Insiders
we then conflate the resignation of adulterous enforcer of unlawful persecution of poor people from the lower house with Senator Lidia Thorpe announcing her move to the Senate cross bench. #Insiders

My 15 question for @PeterDutton_MP:

1. Have you read the Langton/Calma Report?

2. Which specific points of the Calma/Langton Report did you disagree with?

3. Why didn't you attend Garma 2022?

4. Why did you walk out of the Apology to Stolen Generations?

#auspol #insiders
5. Why did you publicly support Mark Ellis, one of the "Pinkenba Six"?

6. Since becoming an MP in 2001, what have you done specifically for the First Nations ppl in your electorate? Pls provide the detail.

#auspol #insiders
7. Why did you twice refuse to consider Ken Wyatt's 'detail' on the Voice when it was taken to Cabinet?

8. When in Govt, the Coalition failed to Close the Gap, why did your party's strategies fail to Close the Gap?

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders the interview is with Cobble Cobble Professor Megan Davis. The panel is ABC referendum corro Dan Bourchier, 9fax (Age/smh) politics corro David Crowe, and 9fax (AFR) columnist Jennifer Hewitt.
opening spiel: the “big ambition” of the Albanese government. Fixing the health system, submarines, referendum. The No campaign is “grabbing attention” - a newsroom choice - says Speers. #Insiders
summary editorialising (“here’s where we are”) is a hotch potch of federal referendum and one local town. The montage is also about Mparntwe. Dutton gets a run, lying about the usual rank disunity in the Liberal Party room. #Insiders

Good morning tweeps, Today's tutorial is on Liberal party Political tactics with an excellent example. It goes like this
1. Choose part of a data set, Publish it
2. Amplify it through the Main Stream media (who never check) and
3. Hope to hell none checks the evidence.
The Example is Defence.
1. the Semi truth is that Labor doesn't fund Defence very well because in 2012 they took $2.5 billion out of defence.
2. They amplified it through Simon Birmingham on ABC breakfast and then #insiders picked it up as well.
3. BUT Vincent checked the facts.
Not only did he check the facts he checked the whole facts. here is the result, it's worth reading the truth about Defence funding, especially for veterans affairs where the coalition were woeful contributors.…

good morning☀️happy December! Today on #Insiders are murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, ABC newsreader Dan Bourchier and ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn. The interview is with Indigenous Australians minister Linda Burney.
the government finishes the year on a high, says Speers. Significant reforms passed and Morrison censured. But the Nationals announcement on not supporting a Yes vote on the Voice referendum is “not everything went the governments way” #Insiders
the media are hyping the Nationals announcement as a No campaign. What the Nationals SAID was they will not support the proposal for a constitutionally enshrined First Nations Voice to Parliament. #Insiders

opening spiel: Andrews makes history, federal implications, tuff times for Liberal Party politicians. #Insiders
