A. If you’re more interested in moaning on Twitter than getting real, this urgent thread will be hard to read (so scroll on).

But if you want to get truth instead of more sugar-coating or tears, here it is.

The first thing needed to be said is: with respect, please grow up. Image
B. What #Snotty did yesterday has been coming for a while, for those willing to see it.

In fact, it’s been coming since January 2020.

Because this is LNP philosophy: people are not humans to them, they’re just workers or units of production power.

Your ONLY value to these …
C. … pricks is how you add to (or detract from) the prosperity of the wealthy.

Once you understand that, the rest becomes a bit easier.

Because you can then stop being upset & miserable, & get ANGRY.

And when you’re angry, you can decide to get organised, & decide to fight.

Of course it is.
"Sarcasm Font"
Yes, this is behind a paywall.
I don't know if Leigh Sales is the author because I can't see a byline.
But it's totally hilarious that the NewsCorpse moneygrubbers think a photo of Sales as clickbait to get the rubes to subscribe is an effective sales pitch.
(Yes, I did a pun!)

@Peter_Fitz The Vic second wave was almost completely created by outbreaks in federally regulated aged care. The state didn't know, because the cases and deaths were reported to Colbeck, who didn't pass the data on to the state. The coroner alerted the govt to the issue./2
@Peter_Fitz Even once the data were formally requested, it took 3 months to reconcile Colbeck's data against the coroners records. The situation got so bad that the state set up SWAT medical teams to raid aged care facilities, quarantine the staff and transfer the residents to hospitals. /3
@Peter_Fitz Many of the residents were in a terrible state unfed or watered for nearly 24 hours, maggots in bed sores, lying in their own excrement. Many of the swat team members are still being treated for PTSD. And then Morrison called it the "Victorian outbreak". /4

@denniallen @AnimaeOK Most of the mainstream media are effectively the same politico/propaganda organisation:
1) #Newscorpse was founded by Rupert Murdoch, the son of the man who founded the Liberal Party, Keith Murdoch. /2
@denniallen @AnimaeOK 2) The Chair of the ABC, Ita Buttrose held election fund raisers for the Liberal Party and was hand picked by Liberal Leader, Scott Morrison in breach of the accepted selection procedure. /3
@denniallen @AnimaeOK 3) The Nine Entertainment Co, which also publishes the ex-Fairfax newspapers Age and Sydney Morning Herald, is Chaired by Ex-Liberal Treasurer Peter Costello. /4

BREAKING: @vanOnselenP refuses to justify his claim that @JoshFrydenberg has had a good 2020. Thanks for confirming my view that you are a hack. A thread ⬇️⬇️
#auspol #newscorpse #MurdochRoyalCommission
FACT: The Australian economy was heading to a recession before COVID19. @JoshFrydenberg is the Treasurer. Is that part of his good performance in 2020 @vanOnselenP? #auspol #MurdochRoyalCommission
FACT: The #Jobmaker estimate is a lie! Senate estimates confirmed that the scheme would create 45,000 jobs not the promised 450,000. Is that part of his good 2020 @vanOnselenP? #auspol #MurdochRoyalCommission #thisisnotjournalism

As I've read the entire report on HQ, it is now time to look at the inevitably biased media coverage. This biased article is written by @EwinHannan. A thread. ⬇️⬇️

#auspol #springst #hotelquarantine #thisisnotjournalism

theaustralian.com.au/commentary/coa…
I thought the @australian was a National Newspaper? It's hard to believe that as the article doesn't mention the Federal Government once. This is despite the fact that the report mentions their errors several times. #auspol #springst #hotelquarantine #thisisnotjournalism
Coate clearly declares in her report that she couldn't confirm whether the ADF was available for front-line enforcement in HQ. Given that, this entire paragraph is terrible journalism.

It looks like I'm back. Let's start by diving into some trash journalism from infamous Victorian 'journalist' @rachelbaxendale. A thread ⬇️#auspol #springst #ThisisNotJournalism

theaustralian.com.au/nation/politic…
.@rachelbaxendale has written a total of 7 articles on Nancy Yang this year! Yang is merely an electorate officer and a part time one at that. Such an intense focus on a partime staffer is unheard of. This is clearly dog whistling nonsense. #auspol #springst #ThisisNotJournalism
The article presents ZERO and I mean zero evidence that Yang has any links to the Chinese Communist Party. It is mentioned in the first paragraph and never touched on again. Trash journalism. #auspol #springst #ThisisNotJournalism

@Heidi_Cuda @BrentAllpress @Tentoads4truth @elliemail @MalcolmNance @Nick_Carmody @TeamPelosi @YourAnonCentral @jennycohn1 @ericgarland @JYSexton @politico YVW thank you for all your posts/threads..the CA one was excellent- the psychometric profiling of people prone to extremism and weaponizing them is one of the low points of this sad Trump/Brexit saga in history. For my money Murdoch is one of beneficiaries of it.

Hi @timdunlop - I found your excellent article meanjin.com.au/blog/journalis… by following a link from @JoshBBornstein. The only thing I would add is that with COVID-19, the actual experts, the source of what the journalists are writing about, are also in the audience. /2
In the context of COVID-19, immunologists, epidemiologists & health workers are often some of the most dismissive critics of journalists, and again #NewsCorpse, and its fellow travellers of LNP-aligned organisations are often targeted. /3
In this case because much of what they publish is not only deeply partisan but downright dangerous.

@CaoAhMan It would be. How do you see that happening, though? (I'm still reading up on Dan Andrews & the BRI, by the way, even wading through the #NewsCorpse sludge just to see what the other side says about it)
@CaoAhMan OK. I've come to some conclusions..

Dan signed up to BRI in 2018. I accept his statement that it was purely about jobs. But I'd like to know if he still maintains that position.

Since 2018 China has made it increasingly clear that trade and diplomacy can no longer be separated.
@CaoAhMan And trade & human rights cannot be separated either.

On that note, I'll just add the Morrison Government are total hypocrites for slamming Dan Andrews over the BRI. Morrison & his predecessor Turnbull both praised the BRI, & both signed up to it, albeit on more stringent terms.

1/3 About the idea of a letterbox drop of a pamphlet on the true evils of the Morrison government and #NewsCorpse...

I'm going to do it. I'll provide my name & contact details so I'll have a way to receive feedback & answer questions, but I'll also have to take the consequences.
2/3 I'm going to give it a trial run in my own 'hood, which sits in a safe Labor electorate but is quite a mixed bag demographically speaking. I don't know what will come of it, but I can't sit here while our main source of media is engaging in Orwellian distortions of the truth.
3/3People need to know the truth about our federal government's inaction, corruption & efforts to destabilise state premiers' efforts to contain COVID-19, but they'll never hear it from #NewsCorpse. I don't know if this is the answer, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. #auspol

We missed chatter here yesterday because we were on bullshit patrol at @newscorpaus!

Yes, we’re the ones who dumped two tonnes of prime poo on Murdoch’s front door

#NewsCorpse must QUIT THE BULLSHIT and #TellTheTruth about the climate emergency.

Stinky shit ⬇️

THREAD:
Extinction Rebels from Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Tasmania coordinated with rebels in the UK and the US for an international day of action targeting media lies.

#NewsCorpse is the Lord of the Lies!

It must #TellTheTruth and reduce its lies of emission to zero!

Sydney ⬇️
Rebels in @xr_brisbane kicked off the international day of action by blockading News Corp’s printing press and distro centre.

9 Rebels were arrested, preventing lies from being delivered in Meanjin yesterday 💁

Ok, so now I'm awake and tweeting for the 3rd time today. This time it seems somewhat less apocalyptic and my path is clear (at least for the next 15 minutes or so). First though, I'd better feed the dogs, mow the grass and get a load of washing on. Doh, already distracted.
#australiavotes2019 has spoken. Approximately 51% of our country wants more of the last 6 years.

So, why don't us progressives, nay, outcasts, give it to them?
Step 1. Create a church and make it tax exempt. Membership is open to anyone that believes in a supernatural being that supports, encourages and enables the #LNP government to engage in behaviour that is corrupt and bad for the future and the environment.
