Stuff the Pub test, let’s put Politics to the Sports test?

We often hear someone refer to a political issue and say “well, that doesn’t pass the pub test”, but as I have discovered, many don’t really know what that means and can’t relate to it. Not to mention, with all the two horse race type commentary that seems to focus primarily on the “game of [...]

A Federal election is imminent and media matters

Australians will vote soon and contrary to popular opinion on twitter, a swing against the sitting government as being shown by recent polls WON’T decide who runs the country.

You only care because they are winning 🙄

As many of you know, I am a massive advocate for Women In Sport, I sink hours of my life tweeting about it, trying to promote it, every Sunday do a #BallsOnly session trying to shame Australia’s sports editors into taking Women’s sport seriously and give it the prominence it deserves in media.

Good Men, you have a problem but YOU can fix it

Serious potential collateral damage from Australian government doing News Corp and NineFax a solid ☹

Serious potential collateral damage from Australian government doing News Corp and NineFax a solid ☹

Public Interest Journalism is really important and I wish there was more of it, sadly, I highly doubt the Australian governments attempts to slay the Google and Facebook dragons are going to improve Australians access to it, more likely a lot of small business collateral damage with very little to show [...]

What is more dangerous, the gun or the ammunition?

It is only recently that some media organisations finally decided enough was enough and started calling out Trump’s lies, realising just how dangerous they were. Something that might have been a hell of a lot more useful prior to him even being elected, but anyhow, guess better late than never.

It is not Marina, it is you!

Prior to the Marina Go interview I ‘thought’ the powers that be in Super Netball really didn’t give a rats about fans but bloody hell, after this interview I ‘knew’ they didn’t! In fact, rather wished I had never listened and had that 'thought' confirmed :(

When people are scared and anxious, information is more important than scoop!

Right! About *that* Dan Andrews Victorian government press conference (06 August 2020) on the first day of the second lock down in Victoria…

Scott Morrison cancelling Parliament - again - is pathetic!

Scott Morrison cancelling Parliament - again - is pathetic!

This afternoon I was horrified to see the below tweet fly through. Not that Parliament had been cancelled, we were already informed of that and you might have seen #JobShirker trending on twitter, it was apt, but the click bait question from The Drum – which they seem to have form for nowadays – [...]
