Well if the Poms can get one thing right its their Media Scrum. They are pretty relentless in questioning of their leaders but sadly I believe it can be said the quality of the politician in England is not of the highest quality.
Good accountability can only be achieved and maintained a strong media who are fearless in questioning and investigative journalism.
Yes that via the way it WAS, not now. Our media now has descended into what can only be described as protection rackets who cover the arse of who gives them the inside running, be it news or business that in the past would be done by the Marfia.
In Australia Murdock has a monopoly, all blessed by the current government who get their propaganda out guaranteeing their control over Pay Tv and media digital and what’s left of hard copy.
If that’s not fertile ground corruption ill stand naked, and explains the acrid attacks on the public network who honestly tries to deliver a balanced view,
Sadly a “Balanced View” is ridiculed as a lefty socialist when the commercial media is that of the far right that would make Hitler smile.
The classic example is America with the assistance of a imbecile Trump split the already split nation into tribal warfare. Fox and CNN both abandoned true journalism and went to their corners and put on a show about as informative as a Jack and Jill book, but was feasted on by total fuckwitts on both sides.
The damage done is irreparable and before Trump it was a fractured nation racially ,economically and without any social conscious, and that capitalistic inbred culture will eventually destroy their society.
Enough with the Failed State, looking at our media does not take much analysis. Take a look at the wet behind the ears so called reporters fronting our leaders daily and they have about as much talent as my dogs squeaker.
Check out the mobile phones, all with questions texted to them by their bosses back in the office, while every now and then a real war horse pokes up his or her head and fires a ouch, and them who do don’t get asked in fear of having to respond off script.
Playing the game, a serious game that creates or destroys players who make decisions that effects every one of our lives. These mouth peaces in suits are often pay back jobs from the incest culture within the media organisations, and gone are the middle class kids running for anything that will get them into a building let alone a news room, and that flight for culture reflected in their journalistic style on and off air.
They are the real journalists, the ones that are memorable by their stories that shape our nation and shake the cages of the rich and powerful or the urban crook ripping off the granny.
Todays news is like quote “going to a Pizza shop”. You get to select which flavour you like and which truth you feel suits your lifestyle.
I object with passion outlets calling themselves News when its Opinion or more than that Entertainment, and it’s sad how people cannot define the difference out of pure ignorance.
ABC News Breakfast V Sunrise, Radio National V a million shock jocks, stark comparison you may say but answer the question: Do I Have the Intelligence or information to define what is the difference ?” OR do I want to?
If you can’t you should just think, because that what the fake news, conspiracy theorists thrive on and you’re their prey.
Struggle with that? You’re not alone just look at America an entire nation fell for it and it really boils down to a IQ test, cruel but true.
They’ll sell you a car with a free bumper bar, and they bought it hook line and sinker, and still do as we speak.. And that both sides..Dumb Down the population, starve them of news outside their bubble and the population can be manipulated much easier.
Yes I’m opinionated, an observer of human behaviour broadly and a belief we all should help each other up, not crawl over them to get up which puts me in the socialist category I suppose and I’m pretty comfortable in that seat.
