The Morrison circus is over but the mainstream media must go on

It’s facing enormous challenges since Labor won the Federal Election and immediately embarked on a whole new way of doing governance that (so far) positions policy before politics. At first blush, this seems to be the opposite of the “flood the zone with shit” strategy practised by the now defunct L-NP Government led by the now defunct Prime Minister, Scott Morrison.

It’s a challenge for voters as well, reeling as we are from years of daily chaos that rapidly became our new normal as the former Government lurched from one scandal to another, as lies went unremarked and commentators, rather than contest this cavalier abandonment of truthfulness and transparency, normalised it by declaring we were in a “post-truth” world.
