More asylum seekers arrived by plane under Liberal govt in 2017/18 than highest number that arrived under Labor by boat in 2012/13.

Question: how well have media done their job in reporting these basic facts?
This expert analysis by @quaedvliegs contradicts taken-for-granted media narrative that Liberals have ‘secured the borders’ and therefore blows Liberals’ over-amped AS rhetoric out of the water. I’m sure many won’t let these pesky facts get in the way of a good story nevertheless
This is the perfect example of what I found in my research - that narratives overwhelm concern for fact. The media narrative of ‘Liberals better on national security’ has overtaken journalists concern for ACTUALLY FINDING OUT THE TRUTH. So disappointing.
