If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


The Peter principle

Do not join Qatar’s Al Jazeera and support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt unless you have two ex-hippie parents who are very media savvy.



I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits

Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?



I just realised that, apart from stupidly interfering in Egypts domestic politics and receiving a well deserved jail sentence, I'd never HEARD of Mr Greste before, let alone read anything he'd written. Which then lead me to consider, just how much of real interest or personal value has the Media added to my life. And my conclusion? Absolutely nothing; Larry being a notable contrary exception! So, no more scouring the News for this little black duck, I have a new lease on life, and so much of real importance to achieve.

Looks like a poofter to me.

I forgot to mention Kane Bennett is also an ex-DIGGER - somebody who DID SOMETHING FOR HIS COUNTRY. I would really like to punch the SMIRK off this low-life's face.

There has bee an appeal started to help the wife and children of Kane Bennett who was struck by lightening during a storm in Qld yesterday. Will the government give any money to help them. No just lots of red tape and misery. Yet they will waste time on this SCUM.

A different topic. Tostee - on bail for murder in Qld was arrested for being drunk and driving at almost 200kms/hr during a police chase. If somebody had been killed or injured it would have been blamed on the police. NOT THE MAGGOT JUDGE that gave him Bail in the first place. When are they going to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE?

If the guy decides to work in a shithole, why is he surprised when it all turns to shit?

Initially the ABC was formed to cover country areas with news and entertainment as the only commercial stations were located in the cities and over the years commercial stations began to cover the country areas, so no begs the question do we need the ABC now given there biased reporting especially against all NON labour / Green parties. Lets save a billion dollars every year and sell it off to the commercial station or just close the doors.

Am I the only one wondering how many millions of dollars in "aid" were transferred from Australia's overdrawn accounts to Egypt to secure Peter Greste's release? (And how many anonymous Swiss bank accounts are suddenly looking very healthy?)

or he didn't talk over his wife, she did all the talking he hardly got a word in. what was he therefore ? just to look stupid in his red hat?

Well said, he deserves only 2 lines from you, one about his hippy parents says it all, waste of taxpayers time and money!

From the look of ex hippie father I think he gets dressed in the dark

He had Beatnik parents who created a superficially conservative conformist who was actually consumed by rage from lack of being disciplined.

Just saw dad and mum on 7.30 report. Not a single word of gratitude for the Aust governments and Julie Bishops efforts to have him released.

Yet another terrorist supporter returning to Australia and free to roam the streets! :P

The ABC has been flogging this story ad nauseam. The dickhead made his own bed by aiding and abetting the enemy.

Alan Jones is worse than David Marr. At least Marr knows which side he's on.

You are very much discounting the Al Sisi effect. He is going to be a very significant influence on Middle Eastern affairs in the future. He cannot move too quickly & must hold together many elements in Egyptian society. But the West will be very glad that he is in control.

You can now add Alan Jones to that list.

Our Western media are as traitorous as the Labor, Greens, Pup, KAP socialist alliance.
