so many deaths especially in aged care homes are a problem *for the Morrison government* which was apparently “too optimistic”. Also Liberal Party politicians feel sad about maybe losing power this year.
lmao the poor Scott narrative which was kicked off by Murphy last week by elevating a view expressed by one white male blue collar voter is gathering speed with press gallery sympathisers👏🏼 Image
pretty funny* that Morrison is so desperate he is already pivoting to underdog comms and the press gallery bless ‘em are right there alongside him to kick Liberal Party #CampaignComms along in an election year.
they will jump, for survival, because the Morrison government is a sinking ship, but their Liberal Party loyalty runs so deep that the howling illogic will be a sprawling misinformation fest to behold.

good morning! Happy Sunday☀️this week on #Insiders are Guardian Aus politics corro Sarah Martin; Sat Paper politics corro Karen Middleton; and ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn.
The interview is with Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews.
This thread is not fact checked.
opening spiel : a hypocrite a liar a horrible person and a liar are “savage character assessments of the prime minister” says Speers.
What’s the Morrison perspective, skip? Well, it was meant to be the week of government re-set #Insiders
ministers insisted the prime minister is a fine fellow, Speers tells us, omitting the crucial detail - they spoke to how he treats his ministers, not the contempt he displays to the electorate or cruelty to entire population sectors. #Insiders

hey remember when Sarah Ferguson got a promotion to cover the 6 Jan insurrection after promoting one of its key protagonists on an apparently serious Australian investigative journalism show.
journalism loves rich white males with incumbent power, episode infinity.
literally impossible to picture #NPC giving a platform to anyone who would represent the progressive equivalent of a Clive Palmer. Where are the invites to BLM folks and unemployment activists?

not making nice is dangerous and costly. Hell hath no fury like a powerful male defending male power scorned etc etc theshot.net.au/general-news/u…
one of the worst things about the Canberra press gallery is their collective and complete disinterest in developing even a basic level of feminist literacy.
I mean promoting sympathy and underdog feels for incumbent tory power is just revolting. But even the ones who try and critique prime stuntclown invariably reproduce orthodox patriarchal and colonial frames and narratives in their work.

seems journalists can not recall the RBA dropping interest rates since the first Abbott Hockey budget tanked our post-GFC recovery, and throughout the Turnbull and Morrison governments, because Coalition economic management is so bad.
long before the pandemic, the RBA Governor was trying to save garbage Coalition fiscal policy from itself - mountains of debt, eye-watering waste, austerity budgets - by dropping interest rates to stimulate the becalmed economy.
press gallery journalists, who understand next to nothing about macroeconomics or any economic theory, out here amplifying political lies about what conclusions one can surely draw from a possible future minuscule interest rate correction.

good morning☀️happy new year! This week on #Insiders are Guardian Politics editor Katharine Murphy, 9fax (AFR) correspondent Phil Coorey and Perth radio host and columnist Gareth Parker.
The interview is with Labor leader Anthony Albanese.
opening spiel: speculative claim about omicron wave, statement that “political bruises remain”.
What’s the Morrison government perspective, skip?
Well, it “wasn’t the summer we hoped for, especially for the government”. #Insiders
montage is politicians and journalists on omicron. The Albanese line about being easier to get covid that rapid antigen tests gets a run. So does Chalmers locating responsibility where it belongs. #Insiders

journalists stop amplifying what politicians say about a virus challenge 2022.
seems the political - and false - claims about omicron made by Barnaby Joyce and Scott Morrison and Dominic Perrottet are causing low uptake of booster shots.
who could have predicted that Coalition politicians naturalising characteristics that are a function of public health settings would cause more transmission, infection, and deaths. Or as they call it, “risk”.
