Apart from this I have been seething away at the standard of political journalism, which yesterday reached a new low in comparing a modest attempt to rein in bad and misleading press stories to the actual savage censorship of the press by sundry brutal dictators. News Ltd crowned this by putting the Minister's face into a photo of Stalin in uniform, which in my opinion reached a new low. I protested on line, but my comment was not published. Surprise. Most of the comments were as bad as the press report - which was very low on facts, but fervent in their belief that this government is both communist and socialist.
Get real, folks! If you want to be total ratbags, at least try and ascertain the facts, both historical and in the present.
