Government attacks on the ABC reveal conflict over Australia’s future

 

The Anti- Democratic Triumvariate  is the LNP Government, the IPA and private trash media like News Corp. Murdoch wants digital news as click bait to read and inspire like the Herald Sun (ODT)

Media editor Dr Lee Duffield says a new complaint by the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, comes against a background of ABC-baiting that strikes up mutual interest between radical-right politics and conservative media.

The worrying issue was this attitude:

  • the Government would like news to be uncritical and friendly publicity;
  • it will hit out at media that does not oblige; and
  • it may mate-up with other media that join in the criticism, setting out to be its mouthpiece — for something in return.
