Australia. Climate. This is your democracy.

Peter van Onselen appeared with Annabel Crabb on tonight's [24/11/09] 'Lateline'.

Van Onselen may as well have just said: "Rupert's message to you is that Turnbull is GONE!"

Democracy needs journalism. Corporate journalism operates in the opposite direction. Australia is now a democracy/journalism free zone. Opinionism is not journalism, but nobody cares and nobody is really doing anything to bring these corporate journalists back into the service of genuine democracy.

Weird how the only people who get really shitty about the above statement of fact are "journalists", usually of the Murdoch persuasion, while at the same time doing their masters' bidding.
