lmao reporters pretending it was not the Treasurer who gave a bunch of concessions to Zuckerberg. A quintessential picture of how our major media outlets all broadcast whatever shovel of shit Morrison ministers spoon to them.
doran god he is like a plastic prototype of Howard-era journalists. No analysis or institutional memory at all. A cipher with a microphone.
journalists who came of age in the Howard years, I mean. My oldest son grew up (5-15yo) in that ghastly era and mate I had to de-program him very regularly.
the ABC radio journo is now describing the manner in which Frydenberg delivered his announcement about getting Zucked like that makes arrogant spin doctoring a good thing🙃
next thing we know, the same journalists who breathlessly broadcast this opposite day political comms from Frydenberg will be telling us that *Frydenberg* has *become* a better/more effective/fanciful nonsense communicator lol
“the Coalition’s majority is now down to 76 seats” oh dear. The ABC really bringing home collective ignorance of basic governance today.
hilarious* hearing news reports that fb issued a statement to clarify the concessions they extracted from the Morrison government and Australian journalists STILL bookending the story with grabs of *what Frydenberg said* in his umpteenth opposite day announcement.
speaking of Australian media outlets obediently disseminating whatever opposite day bullshit is shovelled at them by Liberal Party politicians.

she was “barely out of school” and is the third woman to disclose what he did to her. Same Liberal Party ministerial staffer.

theaustralian.com.au/nation/politic…
least worst section of her story. It is predictably horrific. Image
it can not be overstated that Liberal Party politicians and their media mates have consistently responded to what is quite apparently a serial rapist by mouthing vacuous nothings about “cultural” change.

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, Saturday Paper journo Karen Middleton and ABC radio host Raf Epstein.
•this thread is not fact-checked.
•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

“we at all times, the ministers who had knowledge of this matter, and the senior staff who had knowledge of this matter, sought to have the involvement of the police. But that is not something that we the government can do” - Morrison on the alleged rape in a Ministerial office.
Morrison then asserts that he supported Turnbull in sacking Joyce from cabinet for having a consensual relationship with a staffer.
He does not say why he brought this up.
he spends a few more minutes spreading responsibility for what appears to be a serial rapist in the Liberal Party across all political parties, all workplaces, and “many years”, and fucks off.

seems to be slowly dawning on the political class that Australian voters are, collectively, slightly less misogynist than the most powerful organisation in the country, which is the Liberal Party.
it will be interesting* to see the torrent of votersplaining now that press gallery journalists are compelled to stop polishing and obscuring basic facts about Scott Morrison and the parties of government he leads.
*tedious and painful.
the least qualified people in the country to report, comment on, or analyse what is happening right now are tory politicians and the client press who backed them into power for the last three elections. Take your votersplaining and shove it, CPG.

lmao that thicko Josh Frydenberg is on ABC radio trying to pass off text messages to Zucks which went nowhere and achieved nothing as something other than abject failure.
there was also some British commentator mistaking the Morrison government for something or someone that cares about spreading misinformation on fb which yeah they do - as a core campaign strategy.
Scott Morrison at #NPC: don’t get your health advice from facebook.
Morrison government ministers and journalists: chortle chortle.
Facebook: Australians, no more news including health advice from facebook for you.
Politicians and journalists: WTF WTF.

call corruption and the state deliberately worsening inequality by giving public money to wealthy areas what it actually is challenge 2021.

theguardian.com/australia-news…
this cutesy nicknaming of deeply entrenched corruption and giving our money to their wealthy base serves multiple purposes. It trivialises and minimises the gravity of their corrupted actions, which serves the political interests of the Liberal and National Parties...
using cutesy bullshit language for gross corruption and maladministration also normalises and bothsides their gross corruption and maladministration, which serves the political interests of grossly corrupt Liberal and National Party politicians...
