For Turnbull, Dastyari is a gift that keeps on giving

Image result for Images of Mainstream Media rubbish

The issue we face isn’t Turnbull, Abbott Shorten or Sam Dastyari the problem is the paucity of media and it’s self indulgent approach to presenting only some  facts and carefully avoiding others as Tony Walker does here.

1) The LNP accepted donations from the same Chinese gentleman as the ALP

2) His Chinese staff member is currently working for John Alexander in Bennelong

3) Until busted the LNP accepted a swathe of Rolex watches as gifts valued at $250K from a Chinese developer “Tony Abbott returned a Rolex given to him by a Chinese billionaire …

4) The Chines government has every reason to be “pissed off “with the quality of the Australian Press which we have seen and Malcolm Turnbull’s use of it in the abuse of the China Australia  diplomatic relationship for simplistic and puerile political games that threaten an otherwise stable and mutually beneficial friendship between the two countries. Trump couldn’t have done better

One might well ask:

Why Main Stream media offers so little in the way of information? The media self indulgence can be seen clearly see here just read this article.  For what it’s worth the banner might as well have said:

For Shorten, Abbott is a gift that keeps on giving

 

For Turnbull, Dastyari is a gift that keeps on giving

Three Coalition MPs caught out claiming endorsements they simply never received| (The Army stepped away from this man.)

In mid-2016, Hastie was abruptly severed from the apolitical Army Reserves for using unauthorised images of himself in military gear for his Federal election campaign material (see above).

In keeping with established Liberal tradition, of course, Hastie was entirely unrepentant, reportedly claiming that the ADF had “used a bit of policy to try and push me around”.

The people of Canning were clamouring to see him in his camos, Hastie affirmed:

“I had to decide whose authority I answered to. It was the people of Canning. As a Federal parliamentarian, I don’t take orders from the military.”

With that sort of desire to not take orders from his lawful military commanders, we can be sure the decision to hand Hastie his marching orders was not a difficult one to reach.

Sinclair’s Right Wing TV Takeover Adds To Breitbart/Fox Circle Of Lies | Crooks and Liars

An Alabama Fox News viewer might not notice that his local news is lying to him.

Because now that Sinclair Broadcasting is buying up local news stations, they are pushing right wing propaganda into homes nightly in the guise of local coverage.

So Breitbart says the Moore charges of child molestation are baloney.

Fox News says so too.

Then a local Alabama reporter interviews three people and says “I can’t find anybody who thinks Roy Moore’s past is an issue.”

And Breitbart / Fox then report that a local reporter “on the ground” says support for Moore is tremendous. Zurawik raises the alarm on this echo chamber:

Murdoch Media batting for Trump

Screenshot-2017-10-29 HuffPost - Breaking News, U S and World News.png

On Thursday the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal ― a crown jewel in the media empire of Rupert Murdoch, a close Trump ally — went after Mueller as well. It wrote that the dossier news raises the question of whether the document helped fuel the FBI’s probe into Trump’s campaign. Since the dossier attributes allegations to “Kremlin-connected sources,” the board argues that would mean the FBI could have been essentially acting on “disinformation” provided by Russia. And if there were a need to investigate the FBI’s actions, that would make Mueller’s FBI ties a major conflict of interest.

One Type Of Terrorism Really Is Underreported — Right-Wing Terrorism

Following President Donald Trump’s false claim that the press purposefully fails to report on terror attacks, his team released a list of attacks that were supposedly “underreported.” The list supplied, however, was entirely devoid of attacks by right-wing extremists and those inspired by the “alt-right.”During a February 6 speech a

He later toned down his threat, promising instead to temporarily suspend immigration from countries that have […]

Police said they had identified the man, who was killed in an early-morning shootout on Sunday, but did not release his name. (Reporting by Teis Jensen; Writing by Balazs Koranyi; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
