article published in private sector media corporation chaired by Liberal Party politician >> columnist interviewed by ABC journalist on ABC TV >> same ABC journalist replays clip on ABC radio for comment from former media advisor to same Liberal Party politician >>
which crystallises and legitimises the fucking ludicrous false equivalence between - wait for it I am not joking - a *hashtag* citing one provincial leader in Australia and armed militias who are followers of the US President and murder peaceful protestors in cold blood.
the former media advisor to the Liberal Party politician is a grandmaster of trollery. It is not just the left, she said. That do what, pray tell? Kill peaceful protestors? To which our ABC conduit of normalising nazis said oh yes, *both extremes*.
And there it is. Job done.
this is exactly, precisely, the role played by journalists at formerly trusted outlets like fairfax and the ABC throughout the 2019 election campaign on behalf of our revoltingly toxic misogynist of a prime minister and his debased disgusting Coalition colleagues.

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

should she have told her cabinet colleagues about a sexual relationship? asks male incapable of not viewing political news from Liberal Party politicians’ perspectives. The question is whether she had a legal duty under the ICAC Act to disclose potentially corrupt dealings.
the ABC brekky telly host calling testimony and pressers from Berejiklian “compulsive” viewing. She means compelling.
yeah okay Nikki there is in fact substantive evidence that we paid for Berejiklian to visit the seat of Wagga on numerous occasions, purportedly to make announcements about government spending, which we also paid for. Image

anyone paying attention knows Morrison was desperate to announce a first on international borders. This was meant to be an arrangement between NSW, Aotearoa NZ and the NT. My guess is the feds were frantic to get their paws on it - for announceable purposes - and screwed it up.
and then we get the self-serving lies of acting junior minister for visas Alan Tudge, obediently amplified as Liberal Party politicians viewpoints always are, by this breakfast telly host. Image
*soon to be disgraced former Liberal MP acting junior minister Alan Tudge.

you’re welcome.
so the Premier’s duty to notify is a legal obligation irregardless of the sexual relationship. Plus the unlucky in love nonsense run by her apologists is at odds with what the Premier says. She categorically states she was not an intimate relationship with Maguire. Here is why>>
as Sam Maiden has reported, “intimate relationship” is a term of art under the NSW Ministerial Code of Conduct; and the Code is in turn incorporated into the ICAC Act by Regulation 5.

hilariously creepy interview with gossipy old Malcolm Turnbull this morning. He calls Maguire her boyfriend, says she is flesh and blood and yearned for comfort and fell in love with the wrong man lol all the exact opposite of her own account of her own life.
he also reckoned the five year relationship is “out of character” lmao no buddy it was not a one night stand.
btw that condescending paternalism - which is his default approach to women, he has no other - is just cover for a proxy war with Morrison, who he hates, for the hearts and minds (such as they are) of the NSW Liberal Party.

there was no community transmission at BLM rallies. The Sydney rally permit was found to be legal by the full bench of the NSW Supreme Court of Appeal. The rallies went ahead because Black Lives Matter. Saying Black Lives Matter is not controversial. It is a statement of fact. Image
we know about the unlawful allocation of public money to seats targeted by Liberal Party HQ because of the ANAO, whose funding as been cut by the Morrison government. Local media publishing opps of the handouts were integral to the vote-buying strategy. Image
her question has been asked thousands of times. Also, the Rosen thesis was an analysis of problems with the Australian mediascape, which Credlin’s aggressive politicking personifies, and especially #Insiders, with remarks about wider relevance. Image
