Kathryn Greiner is on ABC radio arguing against payrises for frontline health workers because it will just be swallowed up by inflation and spruiking a private meditech company that she chairs as an alternative. To payrises. For HCWs.
it is always the sleaziest most brazen Liberals who muscle onto ABC panels to hawk their self-serving careerist barrows wrapped in garbage ideological lies that are wholly inconsistent with the existence of the public broadcaster and public health system and public education.
Sheridan should have been banned from the ABC after frothing at the mouth in full public view at both Baird and Trioli.
Speers invited van Onselen back after a defence of his alleged rapist mate Christian Porter left both Annabel Crabb and Katherine Murphy literally speechless.
every Friday morning there is a cosy murdoch reunion on RN with Speers and Maiden, hosted by Karvelas, where Liberal lies are lovingly laundered and legitimised in exactly the same way death tax bullshit was amplified for Morrison and the Coalition three years ago.
turn on the ABC, get Liberal Party #CampaignComms. There are now whole generations of journalists - like Doran and Norman - who do not even know how NOT to aid and abet abuse of incumbent tory power. They have never seen it. Their bosses did this. So over it.

we have the second ratest highest: Scott Morrison.
he is still lying about the fact that every Coalition budget since they came to office in 2013 is in deficit.
lmaoooo the SC application is white knight Morrison. Fifty cent (sic) of them were women, he says. Partikuly when he was a drektor, he says.

Full 3-judge bench of the NSW Supreme Court of Appeal: lol no go home. Stop wasting the courts time.

Political journalism: the NSW Supreme Court has decided/ruled/determined/settled/dismissed Sydney Liberals [factional brawling]. Image
found to be valid (sic) ABC radio news bulletin is “reporting” a judicial finding on the application. Of validity. In a Sydney Liberals factional brawl. They are implying the Scott faction had a legal victory too. Dismal stuff.
daily I gnash my teeth at press gallery illiteracy. The wilful ignorance of feminist analysis. The innumerate fiscal policy “reports”. Repeated erasure and obfuscation of racism. But the legalese bungling drives me bonkers. Surely they have people who can advise on this stuff.

good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are ABC 730 politics chief corro Laura Tingle, 9fax (Age/SMH) politics chief corro David Crowe, and 9fax (AFR) politics editor Phil Coorey. The interview is with Deputy federal Liberal Party leader Josh Frydenberg.
opening spiel: the [Liberal Party] budget pitch is in. Election to be called “any day now” (ie once Sydney Liberals sort out their shit).
What’s the Morrison perspective, skip? Putting the Coalition “back in the race”. #Insiders
as well as spruiking for a Coalition win, Speers promises to put more focus on Labor’s policy platform [paraphrased]. Thanks, David! #Insiders

apparently not one of his four wealthy institutional high salary-paying prestigious title-endowing employers - nor family, colleagues, relevant professional media or academic associations - can see how urgently an intervention is needed here.
I am absolutely aghast that a wealthy high profile middle aged man - who has previously explicitly stated he was never abused - chose to disclose to a young woman, a survivor of and campaigner to end sexual assault who is half his age, around midnight, on social media.
a man paid to be a titled expert on journalism and to be a very senior newsroom editor and large newspaper real estate columnist in the national broadsheet. Who has a pattern of attacking women who have disclosed as survivors and worked to end sexual assault.
It is horrific.

poor old Birmingham is desperately repeating anti-Labor media lines to the media. They know this stuff off by heart, Simon.
quick let’s see what [checks notes] industry bosses think of a future government imposing basic standards and oversight on aged neglect profiteers and their lethal cost-cutting that kills elderly people and deliberately impoverishes precarious workers.
look it costs money to provide services that governments give us huge amounts of public money to provide - industry boss, paraphrased.

the contrast between hearing an unmediated Labor leader delivering a speech grounded in policy with the partisan cut and paste butchery we are served up by corporate media is incredibly stark.
I agree with aged care as the centrepiece. It feels like the least we can do for what elderly people and their families, and low paid precarious frontline workers, have been going through since early 2020.
1. reinstate a duty nurse - 24 hours - in aged neglect facilities. Decency and efficiencies. Saves on otherwise unnecessary hospital emergency visits [which is profiteers cost-shifting to the public system, obs]
