If you want to know what’s going on around the place, it’s a really good idea to give Fairfax and ‘your’ ABC a big miss. I already do, which is why I can post this from people that really do know how to get it right.
Tim Blair adds: NO FACTS, and this explanatory piece is at Andrew Bolt’s blog, where all their errors and failures are shown the light of day, such as Gerard’s (Henderson) third example:
On 17 July Fran Kelly interviewed Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey. Like Jon Faine and Virginia Trioli, Fran (“I’m an activist”) Kelly was more intent in stating her position than listening to what Joe Hockey had to say. In a 14 minute interview, Fran Kelly interjected, or cut off, Joe Hockey on no fewer than 18 occasions as she attempted to prove that she was correct and the Shadow Treasurer was wrong.
The same applies to the Lamestream media worldwide.
UPDATE, Professor Bunyip gives them ‘what for’:
…by discrediting Demetriou, Hird’s supporters, led by the formidable Liberal spin doctor Ian Hanke, have muddied the waters…
….Hanke, currently holed up in Spring Street in the same building at (sic) the Victorian State Parliament press gallery….
…One of Hird’s closest friends, Rod Law, is a senior executive at Fox Footy, and a key occasional mentor is Rupert Murdoch’s international right-hand man, the Melbourne-born Essendon supporter Robert Thompson….
That settles everything. Hird must be a drug-pushing scoundrel because, well, he has a Liberal ally and is friendly with someone who knows someone who knows someone else who works for Rupert Murdoch.
Tomorrow, expect Wilson to bare Hird’s carbon footprint and his diabolical plan to drown polar bears by leaving the post-training showers running at Windy Hill.That story would be easier to report than the truth, which is that the ASADA farce was ginned up by Julia Gillard as a distraction from her political woes.
