Just thought I'd call in here and check for cobwebs.
If the main stream media ever gets over their deification of Gillard there may be hope for them.
Somehow I doubt it.
That so many people can't see the problems with the previous government is a testament to the current state of journalism in Australia. They were so concerned with going after the opposition while leaving The Government alone, only re-releasing the press releases given to them by the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd government which basically involved trumpeting triumphant try-hard exercises in back-of-the-coaster plans, many of which never left the stale beer sodden table.
And they're still going after Abbott.
And they're complaining that he's not got a 24 hour press release cycle for them to report on.
Honestly, while in opposition the coalition may as well have been in Government as everything they did and said was reported and pulled apart (often carelessly and without thought), and reported as wrong, bad, negative.
