someone should tell the ABC. They played the worst extraction industry ad ever made just yesterday. For free. On the public broadcaster.
i sometimes link to the #Insiders outtake but not yesterday, for the reasons stated:

maybe ABC management does not weigh up the implications of amplifying failed Liberal Party politicians who campaign for gruesome death industries. Or they do, and decide to legitimise corrupted profiteering anyway. I bet they rely on a weak “satire” rationale.
just this arvo I listened to an ABC host amplifying the messaging of another failed Liberal Party politician (Trent Zimmerman, whose politics align with many white journos) to frame a stance against expansion of fossil fuel extraction as “prolonging the climate wars”.
if you support expansion of fossil fuel extraction and fracking the Beetaloo Basin just say so cowards. No need to blame people who are against it for such a garbage policy position.

good morning from unceded Darug lands🥶today on #Insiders are Guardian politics editor Katharine Murphy, Canberra Times columnist Professor Mark Kenny, and 9fax (AFR) politics editor Phil Coorey. The interview is with Arts and Workplace Minister Tony Burke.
opening spiel: the new parliament is about to sit. I shoulda said Burke is probably the interview as new Leader the House. Speers then lists a roll call of disasters. #Insiders
there will be plenty of focus on the new parliament, says Soeers, of his colleagues. He then equivocates cost of living with the plagues and climate catastrophes. #Insiders

“it’s the presidents job constitutionally to defend every law in America” is West Wing brain swoon lol #TheDrum

good morning from unceded Darug lands 🌧🌧today on #Insiders are TSP corro Karen Middleton, ABC Canberra newsreader Dan Bourchier and murdoch reporter Clare Armstrong. The interview is with health minister Mark Butler.
opening spiel is foreign relations - with China, in the Indo Pacific, the Wong meeting with Chinese foreign affairs minister and Albanese talking China threats at NATO #Insiders
the montage is floods to a soundtrack of these days by Powderfinger. Lots of opposition sniping and journalistic voice from nowhere “Albanese facing criticism” etc #Insiders

australian political journalism studiously comparing Johnson and his random relationship with truth to Trump and only to Trump lol say it cowards.
there are no access implications when confining the convo to foreign leaders is why.
the way their systems can lock up our kids on a swear and a whim but apparently removing tyrannicidaires from power is just so complex lads.
