Abbott complained about the ABC news not supporting the local team and that puts me in mind of which media does see it's role as an arm of and mouthpiece for the government of the day. Well the ex-USSR comes to mind and the efforts that the KGB trained Putin come to mind as well as every non-demoratic regime in history and the likes of Murdoch and Conrad Black. The ABC will probably be punished in the phoney war and the phoney budget but unlike these examples from the past and present day Russia we get to toss them out in a couple of years. The question is, after how much damage? Suddenly realising the personal hits he is taking with the leaked budget measures he has come out today to say - for the next electoral cycle. As if!!
Yes there are structural issues with an ageing population and the transition to a new green and sustainable economy but these were being addressed before Abbott, Hunt and Hockey got into their Goebbels mode of opposing everything and finding electoral advantage in passing off huge lies as some kind of policy awareness.
Getup are running a Save the ABC campaign and I assume the Government will ignore it as they don't see their voters as ABC viewers but they might be in for some surprises. What an irony that the bible bashing Abbott and Morrison were delivered a rebuke by church leaders on Good Friday. No comment.
No comment either from Peta Credlin the puppet master for this pathetic PM. Read Pinochio Minor.
