peer reviewed research confirms that the targeted, misogynist bullying surrounding Morrison’s ascension was minimised and trivialised by Liberal Party males, as loyally legitimised and laundered in corporate media outlets by press gallery journalists.…
obviously there is no way that peer reviewed research will prompt press gallery journalists to reflect on their role in misogynist bullying by Liberal Party politicians that waved Morrison into the PMO. Why would they. It is only facts, evidence, and analysis.
corporate media do not value facts and evidence, any more than Morrison does. They do not need that shit mate. Abuse of power is much more rewarding. Not for merit, obviously, they are all terrible at their jobs, per the actual job description. But more rewarding nonetheless.
regular reminder that meritocracy mythology was dreamt up by Mills and the crew to rationalise - lie about - how grotesque inequalities are aggressively enforced in “liberal democracies” and capitalism is pretty much post-feudalism with automation and an extra robber baron class.
still the real king of misogynist bullying is Abbott. Media outlets amplified his relentlessly sleazy and nasty and aggressive and creepily sexist attacks for three whole years.
the first rule of national press club is to never concede error.

good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are Guardian chief politics corro Sarah Martin, 9fax (The Age) economics writer Shane Wright and 9fax (AFR) economics editor John Kehoe. The interview is with shadow Treasurer Dr Jim Chalmers.
this thread is not fact checked. I block snitch-taggers. If that is a new term to you, google it.
opening spiel: it’s a critical week ahead.
What’s the Morrison perspective, skip? Well, the federal budget is the “last chance” for the Coalition parties to turn their electoral chances around. Speers calls Morrison government vote buying “a spending spree”. #Insiders

every single bit of media coverage on this re-announcement by the Morrisons is free campaign advertising for the Liberal Party. Every column inch. Every second of airtime. All of it. Clowns.
framing the re-announcement with line items is specifically designed to make Liberal Party #CampaignComms look credible. It is bookended by poor Jenny narratives. Wholly partisan. Straight up advertising, for the Coalition, during a federal campaign they are losing ON MEDICARE. Image
the partisan health messaging from Speers last night was so irrational I wondered if he is okay. Is hospital funding a good idea? Will Labor pay “aged care” more? He seemed unaware that federal “aged care” cash is currently given to wealthy Liberal Party client donors.

speers out here implying that a virus determines Coalition government debt levels and Opposition campaign promises are taxes.
Labor MP Terri Butler trying to explain macroeconomics to Speers in words of one syllable. Fiscal policy is supposed to allocate tax revenue in the public interest, David. Opposition policy is not in itself a tax, see.
do you think this is a good idea? To have a well funded hospital system? - actual Qs from Speers. Imagine bothsidesing universal* healthcare during a global pandemic on behalf of neoliberal extremism.

sounds like the first election victory speech in this country to open with an acknowledgement, which is of unceded Kaurna country, of elders past and present, and a statement of commitment to Voice Treaty Truth✊🏼
in contrast, the ABC commentators have consistently referred to the leader of the successful party and incoming Premier as a former union leader and member of the shoppies because they just can not help themselves.
incoming SA Premier Peter Malinauskas gives a shout out to deputy leader Dr Susan Close who has a PhD in political science and to longest serving SA state MP Anastasious Tom Koutsantonis.

Green keeps saying there is nothing meaningful in the early figures (he has to bc tiny samples) but all the data sets he has shown are indicating the swing is well and truly on from where I sit.
lots of tiny samples, swings away from the Liberals in each and every one.
the minority SA government looks like retaining most safe seats and perhaps losing a couple to Independents, and losing most marginals to Labor.
