CRIKEY, WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF PEOPLE TO HATE
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.
Bill Shorten had completed his diatribe at yesterday’s Press conference and had invited questions when a pimply-faced 18-year-old chick on work experience pounced to ask the first question. Shorten had been talking his usual crap for the past 10 minutes and many probing questions were screaming to be asked...
“Is it right that Mr Abbott should be lecturing other people on our asylum seeker policy?”, she asked.
And that right there was emblematic of the derelict nature of our partisan Press gallery.
Media’s incandescent loathing of Tony Abbott was apparent well before he unseated their beloved Julia Gillard in a record landslide election.
So, obviously media pays no heed to public sentiment, it clearly cares only for its own ideological mindset.
The hatred became white hot as Fairfax, the Guardian and the ABC then went on a search and destroy mission, embracing litigation and plummeting circulation and viewer appeal to somehow kill Abbott and Hockey.
The blatant criminality of Gillard and highly credible accusations of under-age rape against Shorten were lost in far more important stuff like Abbott’s misogynistic wink to a male interviewer and a bite he took out of an onion and that he “might have” punched a wall 35 years ago.
So, why is the media (with a few exceptions) consistently so far out of step with public sentiment? I mean, it’s not new! It was equally devastated when a hapless Whitlam felt the wrath of the electorate.
It hated McMahon, Fraser and Howard yet feted the alcoholic, womanising Hawke and a highly questionable Keating.
It is now giving Shorten a dream run despite the polls and that poor girl who spent four tearful hours in my office retelling an awful rape the media did not want to hear about.
You have to wonder if Abbott was similarly accused of raping a young girl would it be ignored in the same way. I think we know the answer to that.
It’s a case of circle the wagons whenever a conservative force appears over the hill. Protect the Left flank at all cost and shoot to kill.
Viciously and personally attack those who dare to expose the destructive Whitlam, the criminal Gillard, the incompetent Rudd and the treacherous Shorten... like they do with all messengers, including myself, despite damning, incontrovertible and documented proof of prime ministerial malevolence.
Am I being unfair here? If I am, then why has the malignant media shown no interest in Senator Heffernan’s claims of paedophilia against a living Labor PM? I mean, we all know who it is, but it’s a Labor, not a conservative, Prime Minister so a way will be found to bury that story too.
Can you imagine the in-depth, investigative exclusives if those claims were levelled against Abbott?
No wonder the rest of the world scratches its head when it sees an Abbott-led Government come to power in a record landslide and desperately try to undertake its promises to the electorate despite an outdated, rag tag, obstructionist Labor/Green dominated Senate.
He rebuilt our borders and stemmed the Islamisation of Australia, he demanded Islamic leaders be more honest and stopped a destructive UN-devised carbon tax but in the space of two years he was replaced by someone more of the Left persuasion.
No election, just a change of government to one that was more UN-compliant and one the media would be more satisfied with.
Again the electorate lost out and the media won.
How can that happen you ask? Poor polling? But hang on who commissions these polls? Yep, the media... and there was little doubt that Abbott would have won an election against a bloke like Shorten in a year’s time... perhaps that was the foreseeable problem.
And when Abbott was being openly undermined by a jealously ambitious Turnbull who was being supported by a treacherous, UN-besotted deputy like Julie Bishop and a sneaky little global warmist like Greg Hunt, I guess Abbott had no hope.
But we are not alone in suffering a partisan Left media. The NBC debate on Republican contenders showed a Left US media determined to degrade all candidates while defending a lying Hillary Clinton who is under FBI investigation.
Why does the modern world’s media dress to the Left? Because socialist educational institutions nurture those intent on a new world order... many, as they get older and wiser, reject such adversarial crap, but many don’t and they gravitate to jobs in the media or teaching positions where young minds can be influenced.
Many stay in the higher education system to influence conservative-financed pupils to hate conservative values.
The Left is committed to socialist causes like late term abortions, while the mainstream is more concerned about affording shoes for kids who weren’t aborted.
Wherever the Left settles in the workforce it will be in a position of influence and anywhere in the media is the prime prize.
It’s up to us to filter out the bullshit at the ballot box.
