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

good morning on the bird app🐦☀️today on #Insiders are ex-murdoch now 9fax (The Age) politics corro Annika Smethurst, ABC everyman Stan Grant, and murdoch (Oz) serial temper-loser Greg Sheridan.
The interview is with opposition foreign affairs spokesman Simon Birmingham.
opening spiel: “diplomatic deep freeze” is over. What next? Why is Xi re-engaging? asks Speers (A: change of federal government from Coalition to Labor). #Insiders
Australia held its ground, says Speers. Xi has agreed to “the thaw” he says. And these outcomes a mystery to very senior press gallery journalist David Speers, or so he would have us believe. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Another Oz fest on #Insiders today with 9fax (AFR) columnist Jennifer Hewett, murdoch (Oz) columnist Peter van Onselen and murdoch (Oz) political reporter Sarah Ison. The interview is with Home Affairs minister Claire O’Neil.
opening spiel: data dump, Russian hackers, has the federal government DONE ENOUGH to ensure our data is safe? #Insiders
editorialising on the “urgent need” to strengthen defences against hackers. Albanese attending conferences and meetings overseas, a weirdly critical narrative ABC has been pushing this week. The IR bill and cross bench vote. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! It’s an Oz fest at #Insiders today. Rosie Lewis, current corro at the Australian, ABC radio host Pat Karvelas and 9fax (smh/Age) chief corro David Crowe, both formerly of the Australian. The interview is with federal Treasurer Dr Jim Chalmers.
Speers has penned another of his dull nothing-nothing goes-nowhere who-can-say opeds. These are always 800-word cladding on core anti-Labor CPG themes like bR0KeN pR0MiSeS or c0sT BL0w0utS or whatever vested message they land on each week.
opening spiel: bill shock, alarm, the sky is falling and the federal Treasurer has to manage household budgets apparently #Insiders

opening spiel: first “Labor” budget in nine years. Tuff times for voters, little “relief” says Speers. #Insiders
the media fave frame, broken promises. Labor campaigned on cost of living, says Speers, and the prime minister has not shut the wallet completely (?) having announced billions in spending this week #Insiders

good morning☀️this Sunday on #Insiders are Guardian Aus editor Lenore Taylor, ABC newsreader Dan Bourchier and 9fax (AFR) chief political corro Phil Coorey. The interview is with Transport and Infrastructure Minister Catherine King.
opening spiel: the Treasurer’s expectation management. Speers reports the extension of PPL with the usual gallery frame: where will the money come from? Where does he think? Same place as submarine money, David. #Insiders
infrastructure announcements also on way, says Speers, who will interview the infrastructure minister today. The montage is a kind of pre-budget global economy mash up. Ukraine, US recession, coalition politicians whining, one-dimensional editorialising by Probyn. #Insiders

opening spiel: a turning point in Ukraine. Xi is a “great friend” of Putin. More weaponry sought from the west by Zelenskyy #Insiders
the Australian PM is in London, and now he has met the new King [of Australia]. This absurdity goes unremarked. We will cross to one of the 29 ABC staff over there later. #Insiders

good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are press gallery veterans Laura Tingle (now ABC) and Paul Kelly (murdoch sinecure for life or something). The interviews are with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and LOTO Peter Dutton. And John Howard.
opening spiel: the GG is about to declare Charles III king of Australia. Speers says the death of QEII is a profound moment “for Australia”. It would be more profound if nobody declared Charles III our king lol #Insiders
she visited Parliament House, where Speers is now, he says again, 11 years ago. He then claims collective “affection” for QEII on behalf of 25 million people, which is simply incapable of being accurate. She was there through [lists some atrocities without blame] #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are TSP chief political corro Karen Middleton, ABC journo-at-large Fran Kelly, and Guardian Aust politics corro Sarah Martin. The interview is with Skills and Training Minister Brendan O’Connor.
opening spiel is a rundown of jobs summit announcements, including “no quick fix on wages”. Speers highlights the skilled migration intake, TAFE places and working pensioners. #Insiders
we are then told “the tone” matters as much as concrete outcomes. Last week we were told that real outcomes matter more than talkfest announcements.
This type of coverage is about media asserting control over public perception. #Insiders

Cool of media to notice now. #Insiders
Speers reels off a list of workers in low paid feminised industries. Underpaid and under-valued workers for as long as these jobs have existed. #Insiders

opening spiel: the new parliament is about to sit. I shoulda said Burke is probably the interview as new Leader the House. Speers then lists a roll call of disasters. #Insiders
there will be plenty of focus on the new parliament, says Soeers, of his colleagues. He then equivocates cost of living with the plagues and climate catastrophes. #Insiders

what Albanese is not saying - a specific wage rise beyond the 5+% for workers on the minimum wage - and where he is going - to patch up relations with France (not said: which were trashed by Scott Morrison) and to shake hands with Zelensky. #Insiders
