Bit of a gut kick losing him relatively early.

Man, that comes as a bit of a shock I have to say, even if I haven't watched Clarke (or Dawe) in years (nothing against them, it's probably more accurate to say that I haven't watched the 7.30 Report in years). They were a fixture on the televisual scene.

Suppose we shouldn't be shocked: Cory Bernardi's Australian Conservatives to merge with Family First

The best bit? The Family First senator elected after Bob Day's disqualification is going to sit as an independent.

Family Fist seems like a good name for the new conjoined body.

Fortunately for us all, One Nation has an unerring instinct for picking flakes, dodgy businessmen, weirdos and outright psychos as candidates.

Fucking hell, the outrage over Yassmin Abdel-Magied's comments, jesus christ.

Bill Leak publishes blatantly racist cartoons and all these right-wing fuckwits fall over themselves them to defend him cos of freedom of speech, then all call for her to be deported. Give me a fucking break.

Reckon the right wing here would quietly love some censorship of opposing views.

It's disturbing, the hypocrisy of the right when it comes to free speech, but the whole saga only validates what we (most who participate in this thread, I'd say), knew all along.

It was never about "freedom of speech" at all, only about consolidating specific modes and behaviours of patriotism. Some opinions are clearly more legitimate than others.

And how insignificant was the actual post by Abdul-Magied?! She didn't really say anything at all, it was barely a couple of words, not even a sentence.

The warriors against "political correctness" keep insulting those that they disagree with by emphasising their sensitivity (do-gooders, snowflakes - their insults of choice), but how petty must you be to take issue with such a trivial post.

Infuriating, the whole saga.

They're absolute hypocrites, plain and simple, and have been hopelessly exposed.

Just had a look at the Age's website and I'm surprised how much content is there right now. Are they taking that much from wire services? Are there that many scabs?

Fucking Stephen Mayne ahahaha. What a tosspot.

Anyway, fully support the striking journalists. Fairfax's executives now just seem to be stripping assets. No desire for a long-term quality newspaper, just Domain and ads. It's the old parliamentary railway trick: to get a railway line closed, the service provider would run the absolute minimum service they had to, at the most inconvenient time possible. Yes, sure, we're running the mandated two services a day. They're at 4:40am and 11:28pm. Nobody catches them. Please close the line. Likewise, Fairfax can point to declining readership - "we're still producing a paper!" Yeah, but like the train nobody wants to ride, it's a paper nobody wants to buy. The appeals to subscribe are now meaningless. What is being offered is so bad that it's not worth subscribing, and the likelihood is of more cuts and further declining quality, to the point the paper dies. The only reason anybody would have to subscribe is if the paper made a dramatic shift - hired people, put quality journalism at the forefront, downplayed clickbait, etc.
