Importance of marketing success of campaign
Importance of correctly informing the public as to what they need to know?
Thinking of Trump success? Would think 'reality' more important?
National leadership is a serious issue, really deserves serious reporting imo.
How many times have you seen Journalists say "Tony Abbott was the most successful campaigner"?
Well yes obviously. But... reporting like that, using his 'attack slogans' like "carbon tax" is why we ended up with him as PM?
Would we be in this place if the 'attack slogan' had not been treated as legit?
Bevan is not the only one I've seen saying stuff like "retiree tax is cutting through"?
We have to ask why?
In 'reality' there is NO tax on retirees? The whole premise of 'retiree tax' is false?
THERE IS NO TAX BEING PUT ON RETIREES
Tax changes all the time.
Though considering the PM should NOT even be campaigning, he should be working, I would note it is remiss to not be mentioning that either?
This is serious stuff.
I mean, when the baby bonus was 'removed', we didn't suddenly start calling it "a big new family tax"?
imo this is a worry.
I don't want to see another round of bullshit "carbon tax", "mediscare" etc etc. UNLESS I see the precursor "Scott Morrison has stated..."
Media should not be assisting this when it is a falsehood.
This is not responsible government, surely not responsible reporting?
Now I don't watch all political news, but not seen this reported but heard 'retiree tax' squealed heaps?
So who does that leave us with?
But even then, incorrect as in earlier tweets, this is NOT A TAX!
So be under no illusion this is ALP cheerleading

Attack slogans only 'cut through' if media give them the free publicity to do so.
I'd like to see 'real' reporting.
Policy reporting that informs public who & how they will be affected in 'reality'.
No slogans reporting without precursor of '... said'
As no election has been called, maybe mention that too?
