OK I’m gone now. Whatever happens from here on in is your fault.

@scott_thewspot It’s OK, being a crap journalist is about as good as it gets. I aspire to that.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot Which is precisely why the first half gets left off.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

As a rule of thumb, whenever a news story begins “there are fears”, you can be pretty sure there aren’t, or they’d quote somebody.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The trick? You can always find someone who’s afraid. If you can’tbyou just tell someone the scare story and ask them if they’re worried now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

As I said earlier, “there are fears” is a journalistic formula for making something seem scary. twitter.com/paulkidd/statu…

Goddammit, Pauline Hanson’s press conference is on right now. I hope someone posts a complete recording. I need cheering up.

joshgnosis Hanson: You don’t have the full recording.

She says the idea by Ashby was “knocked on the head” at the meeting.

Presumably Fairfax’s lawyers, who are lawyers, thought the same. So here we are.

I’m not a lawyer, but I reckon the content of that recording has so much “public interest” material it’s good to go under QLD law.

This is hilarious when the speaker goes ay off script and drops newsworthy comments. Lazy ones end up reporting things that were never said.
