2/ When the current NSW outbreak began in June, Leigh Sales went on a pre planned holiday. 730 started reported rising cases every episode and balancing stories concerning the seriousness of the disease with those examining the impact of lockdowns.

2/ Trump caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people by downplaying the virus under the guise of “keeping America calm”. And when Delta initially hit Sydney, & Gladys downplayed the risk, Carrick encouraged Sydneysiders to “shrug their shoulders & go about their day”.

1/ When Scott Morrison was recently quizzed on his failures with Hotel Quarantine, he was met with laughter and derision for suggesting Labor was politicising the pandemic.

3/ The best example of a politician playing politics during the pandemic, is the angry little Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg.
