Is it no surprise that Latika Bourkes’ nickname is
LIBtika. Harsh or not depends on your perspective.
And there we have it, ABC’s raison d’être, it is all about the dynamics, carpet-bombing, fireworks – the media is pushing leadership challenges because it gives lazy political journalists something to do. Speculation and opinion have replaced research and facts.
At least, it wasn’t
Tony Abbott says
They rewrite history, and there is no one to stop them. Apparently Stalin was pretty good at rewriting history, to remove enemies or add himself. Maybe that is what critics mean by ABC has a
left-wing bias, the Stalinisation of the news.
Did they? Who knows, probably, that kind of fact-checking is beyond the reach of most ABC reporters these days.

These people are playing games with our future – because when you have a 24-hour news cycle something has to fill the airwaves.
When they don’t have actual news to report, or rumours to speculate on, or opinions to bore us to death with, they just simple sit around talking to each other.
There you have it, ABC, you are not groovy. A sentiment that many former ABC viewers would whole-heartedly agree with.
But have no fear, all that
left-wing bias is more than balanced by the Murdoch media.
Murdoch, and his near saturation levels of ownership, does not seem to affect politics any, because if there is one that Murdoch media is, it’s fair and balance. You will only get truth, justice and the American way if you read one his publications.
Many people don’t know their local politicians any more, so they only way they
know them or their parties is through the media. When all the media in this country is pushing a Liberal-party, Election-now, Abbott-for-PM agenda, it is presenting a distorted view of reality. Of course, right-wing voters are happy with that distortion, it reflects their biases, makes them feel comfortable that they are
right, but it is not a healthy democracy.
