good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC News Indigenous Affairs correspondent Isabella Higgins, Guardian editor Lenore Taylor and AFR columnist Jennifer Hewett.
The interview is with shadow defence minister Brendan O’Connor.
I block snitchtaggers.
Speers opens with the Morrison government decision to criminalise anyone attempting to come home to Australia from (or via) India. #Insiders
as is his wont, Speers puts the prime ministerial perspective first up, but this week it is to draw attention to the obvious *contradiction* between Morrison boasting that HQ is “99.99% effective” and a hard border closure with India. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Saturday Paper journo Karen Middleton, murdoch editor James Campbell and ANU professor Mark Kenny. The interview is with Defence Minister Peter Dutton.
opening spiel: “Australia’s” longest running war in Afghanistan is ending. Speers will ask Dutton about his first portfolio decision - to override the Defence chief. #Insiders
weekly wrap: Perth and Peel in lockdown, and Morrison “facing questions” (lol so what) about his dodgy climate figures. #Insiders

the vaccine rollout is delayed by safety concerns, says Speers, and babbles about national cabinet without telling us Morrison is using the states to deflect and spread the blame for his fuckups. Headline economics figures too. #Insiders
the montage starts with Holgate, which Speers framed as the prime ministers woman problem because as every woman knows it is all about Scott Morrison #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Guardian politics corro Sarah Martin, ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn, and chief ninefax politics corro David Crowe. The interview is with health and aged care shadow minister Mark Butler. This thread is not fact-checked.
Speers is in Launceston to discuss federal issues during a state election campaign to “try and find out what lies behind the shift in national opinion polls”, he says. #Insiders
the montage is on the multiple and rolling ways the Morrison government keeps stuffing up our vaccination program. Lots of clips of Morrison excuses. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are ABC host Pat Karvelas, ninefax-AFR columnist Jennifer Hewett and murdoch columnist and former Liberal Party staffer Niki Savva. The interview is with Liberal Party backbenchers Katie Allen and Sarah Henderson.
an attempted re-set, opens Speers, and a ministerial re-shuffle (sic). But the “prime minister continues to struggle”, as the prime minister himself poor thing told Tracey Grimshaw how hard it all is #Insiders
like all his male colleagues, Speers does not understand usage of the word weaponise. #Insiders

good morning🌧happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, triple j hack politics corro Shalailah Medhora and ninefax politics editor Peter Hartcher.
The interview is with shadow home affairs minister Kristina Keneally.
as ever, Speers opens with Morrison government claims. This week it is “strong jobs growth” without the underemployment facts corrective. “That was the one piece of good news” he adds, before moving to #March4Justice. Morrison first, women second. #Insiders
the montage is clips of speeches and crowds at #March4Justice around the country. “Labor arrived en masse” says one journo voiceover “as well as some Coalition” politicians. Not said: no ministers, only backbenchers. #Insiders

good morning. Today on #Insiders are press gallery legend Laura Tingle, ninefax economics corro Shane Wright, and Perth radio host Gareth Parker.
The interview is with Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack.

btw #Insiders did not promote panellist Professor van Onselen’s column yesterday, which they usually do, under the #InsidersReading tag. Even tho his take on his friend Christian Porter was all over the show last week.
“pressure builds for an inquiry into Christian Porter *and* a huge March for justice”, opens Speers. These things are not unrelated. Womens activism is part of the “pressure”. #Insiders

good morning. Today on #Insiders are guardian politics editor Katharine Murphy, ABC everywoman Annabel Crabb and murdoch columnist Peter van Onselen. The interview is with Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins.

as usual, Speers opens with what Scott Morrison thinks. This week it is the enraging bullshit claim that there is a question as to whether the law (it is not) or the mob (does he mean women journalists?) will deal with rape allegations against Attorney General Porter. #Insiders
the montage has multiple clips of Attorney General Christian Porter crying for the potential loss of his career and Scott Morrison claiming that rape allegations against Christian Porter are a matter for police or not a matter for him or whatever. #Insiders

the montage is, again, politicians and journalists reporting and commenting on the man accused of raping Brittany Higgins in a Liberal Party minister’s office. Sympathetic coverage of the minister. Kelly to the cross bench gets a mention. #Insiders
the lies Morrison tells, and the despicable description Dutton gave both show that they do not believe women. They simply do not listen to or believe us. #Insiders
#WhatThePapersSay Rochelle Miller is seeking compo for her treatment by Tudge and the Liberal government. Wong met with the woman who took her own life and alleges a now-cabinet minister raised her. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, Saturday Paper journo Karen Middleton and ABC radio host Raf Epstein.

•I hide/block snitch-tagging.
the interview is with Morrison government health minister Greg Hunt #Insiders
and a reminder: Maiden broke the APH rape story and Middleton has written extensively and courageously on sexual assault and workplace harassment in Canberra. So any interruptions from Speers are a man cutting off their expertise with his confidence. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are no fax columnist Jennifer Hewitt, and politics editors at the ABC and murdoch press, Andrew Probyn and Samantha Maiden. The interview is with ALP deputy Richard Marles.
opening spiel: a covid turning point. Should we stay with hotel quarantine given more virulent strains? National leadership is wanting (“bipartisanship is breaking down”). #Insiders
the extremely convenient and very false narrative about Morrison “struggling to rein in” his hard right colleague Craig Kelly is repeated by Speers.

*Reminder that spreading disinformation on fb is core Liberal Party strategy, not some side show. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy new year! This Sunday on #Insiders are TripleJ Hack (ABC) journalist Shalailah Medhora and politics editors at Guardian Australia and ninefax, Katharine Murphy and Peter Hartcher. The interview is with federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg.
this is nominally a murdoch-free panel, which has presumably prompted angry phone calls from senior federal Liberals #Insiders.
covid is under control for now, Speers open, continuing the narrative Hartcher and Murphy set up yesterday for a pro-Morrison campaign. “Australia” is doing well, he says, before moving to the Labor leadership.

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are AFR journo Jennifer Hewitt, ABC and all-round legend Laura Tingle and murdoch columnist (and former media advisor to Peter Costello, Liberal Party ninefax boss) Niki Savva. This thread is not fact-checked.
the Speers opening spiel is that Australia is better off than most other countries, some cheap speculation about next year, and then #WorkChoices2, which is the perfect 2-party framing for the kind of conflict journalism Speers practices #Insiders
the montage is all #WorkChoices2. hahaha clip of Probyn saying last time a PM tried this he lost his seat and government. #Insiders

#TalkingPictures is with Amy Remeikis.

I reserve the option to block snitch-taggers.
Speers opening spiel is on “an offensive tweet” and how the Morrison histrionics that followed [paraphrased] #Insiders
seems Speers is of the view that Morrison should have delegated responding to a troll tweet to someone more junior (ya think?) not that he is saying so directly. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Perth radio host Gareth Parker, murdoch editor James Campbell and Guardian politics editor Katharine Murphy. The interview is with trade minister Simon Birmingham, who will be called Birmo at least once on this cosy tory fest.

covid eliminated in Victoria and borders opening up, is the the opening gambit. But “China has dealt Australia a heavy blow”. The tariffs are “punishing”. Speers puts no agency with cak-handed Coalition politicians. #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Angus Campbell at 0900 hours, Saturday Paper journalist and An Unwinnable War author Karen Middleton; ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn and murdoch columnist and Liberal Party leader chronicler Professor Peter van Onselen.
the second interview is with shadow employment minister Brendan O’Connor. All tweets are hashtagged for muting convenience. Please do not tag journalists politicians media outlets etc in replies. Google snitchtagging instead of asking me why. Thanks. #Insiders
“a moment of national shame and a stain in the name of our most elite soldiers” is Speers opening line. So yep, the blame will be spread away from its source, the ADF and the politicians who unleash them on the world. #Insiders

The interviews are with Linda Burney (Labor, Wiradjuri) and Ken Wyatt (Liberal, Yamatji, Wongi, Noongar). #Insiders
double donuts in Victoria and hope on vaccine (a fact and a speculation); and “damning” judgement on treatment of women - by unnamed persons. #Insiders

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Guardian editor Lenore Taylor, ABC everyman Stan Grant and ninefax ponderoso Peter Hartcher. It goes for 90 minutes (bc US politics can not touch Canberra press gallery access to power). There is not one but three interviewees>>
the 3 interviews: former amnesiac, John Howard CoS and parachuted Senator, now parachuted ambassador Arthur Sinodinos; former prime minister Kevin Rudd who won office from opposition in 2007; and former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull who won in 2016, having lost 14 seats.
in other words a dull and orthodox sausage fest of mostly washed whiteness plus Grant who is deeply conservative and Sinodinos.

hahaha yup. Incumbency is the spin. Victory in Queensland for Labor “continues the run of incumbents” says Speers in his opening spiel. Incumbency is powerful, he repeats.

the montage is basically clips from the ALP and LNP leaders speeches - victory for Labor COZ INCUMBENCY SEE and concession for the LNP. No word on where the LNP and how a campaign dominated by Scott Morrison (the minute he could get past the border) fucked up tho #Insiders

the opening spiel says the government is on the back foot about a lack of federal integrity commission and therefore the massively overblown Aust Post Cartier watch story is a thing. #Insiders
this is ridiculous. Speers reckons the prime minister is “hopping mad” about a piddling $20K watch purchase signed off two years ago. As if. #Insiders

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Jennifer Hewitt of the AFR, murdoch columnist Professor Peter van Onselen and ninefax politics numero uno David Crowe. The interview is with shadow education minister Tanya Plibersek.
I block snitchtaggers.
the opening Q is how do voters judge ethics and integrity in politicians... in a pandemic. The framing is false equivalence, not as bad as mumblin Phil bad bad enough: two Premiers (Berejiklian and Andrews) in trouble for different reasons. #Insiders
montage soundtrack: tainted love. Righto Speersy. Lots of clips of Berejiklian doing her innocence act, Liberal Party males defending her in excruciating terms, and a lot less on stage 4 restrictions in Victoria. Frydenberg and Morrison’s politicking get a run. #Insiders

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Laura Tingle of the ABC, Guardian politics editor Katharine Murphy and ninefax Canberra economics correspondent Shane Wright.
as ever, Speers opens with the Morrison government perspective. He asks if “betting everything on a business-led recovery” will work? The answer is no. #Insiders
Speers then pretends that the government has shifted from income support to incentivising business. In fact, the government has “shifted” from a rorted wages subsidy to an equally rortable wages subsidy. Both are paid to business, not workers. #Insiders

#SpeersSpiel: astronomical federal budget debt. Where will the billions go and where should they go?
[A: to rich people/to poor people].
billions will go to [what Morrison and Frydenberg have been saying all week]. “Handouts” to manufacturing, says Speers. The montage heavily pushes the revolting conceptualisation of unemployed people as units of capital (“jobs jobs jobs” from “both” sides). #Insiders

#Insiders is normally a federal politics show but Speers opens with the Victorian government today. Odd. He also mentions what the federal government says about “jobs”. The usual lies about “work” - they mean unemployment FIGURES - are repeated.
opening the show with the Morrison government perspective on “jobs” and what the Treasurer wants statistics to do. Men like Speers refuse to understand that this framing dehumanises unemployed people. We are not just latent jobs and statistics for political campaigning. #Insiders
