Yet again the world is amazed at the degree to which Democracy has been blindsided by the media in Australia. Murdoch, Costello and Stokes leave little room for Democracy. If Morrison wins the ABC will be shut down not just watered down like it has been. Morrison didn’t just “host” the media at that very private function he celebrated and gifted them. Skye & News Corp are sponsoring the First Debate on Wednesday with a panel led by Paul Murray immediately after. Hardly a balanced program for those watching a more than challenging one for Albanese which he has already lost.
We must note the Prime Minister and his Government, beleaguered by poor performance and mismanagement, is still in contention this election because of Australia’s media coverage.
