Craig Thomson depicted by Sydney Morning Herald and TheirABC as giving Nazi Salute – disgraceful Fairfax and ABC

During Thomson’s hour long speech to Parliament, Fairfax came in for some criticism, including the fact that in 12 articles (by Kate McClymont and Samantha Maiden) they had not once gone to him for a comment.

With one hour of Thomson speaking, there is no need for this image to run on both news outlets. This is a deliberate choice.

This is how Fairfax responded. (Thomson was in fact, pointing to the other side of the chamber)

Fairfax have given up all pretence of balance and fairness. They have joined the ABC and Murdoch in treating democracy like their personal chew toy.

Hopefully they will see the error of their ways and remove this image, but this is the picture Fairfax ran with their Thomson article.

Disgraceful.

This image (below) ran on the main page of the ABC websiste (http://www.abc.net.au/news/) -but not on the individual article

  1. The Australian Media has a lot to answer for where they seem to be Judge, Jury and Firing squad. This is the latest episode.

  2. Bring in the lawyers Thomson

  3. Shocking right wing propaganda..along the lines of criminal murdoch press and gina rinehardt channel 10..That rag will never see a dollar from me.

  4. That is it for me, with Fairfax…….this is simply nauseating.
