No it's true ! After some very extensive and exhaustive research l've come accross an undeniable fact which is that her father a journalist himself, has the name Frank Devine.

So she's a born and bred journo Thumbs Up and speaks very well on radio too has a very relaxed measured tone with a deceptive gravity to what she says. A No-nonsense type lady Smile

Only listen to bits and pieces and last night she had Mark Latham on who gave a very good dissertation ? it's good for practise anyway Wink of the current Labor party and a few other things political - it was good value if you have the time to indulge.

I do recall the name Frank Devine as newspaper journo, many years ago. 

With that name, I guess it was either follow into the family business, or become a stripper.

"... and now presenting the magnificent Miss Miranda Devine!!!" ... great stripper name!!!LOL

Devine is not a journalist.

we have no journalist ... we only need twitter, and the former journalists are pooping their nappies and trying to reinvent themselves accordingly.

Heard her for 5 mins this evening.

berating the left 'elite' (lmao) for using identity politics to "divide and conquer".

tbh, she made a decent point about the left and its obsession with identity politics. but the divide and conquer bit was flat out moronic miranda. As was calling lefties 'elites'.

Frank was a Kiwi born, and was a columnist and editor of The Australian - passed away 2009 age 77 (glad I didn't have him on my list).

I've seen Miranda on Sky a few times, she is a no apologies conservative, but she does seem well researched on what she comments on. 

Cabo, morally elite is almost always worse than materially elite ...

yes yes. she was very well researched when she called david pocock a lollipop for using "jazz hands" after scoring a try. pocock later explained it was sign language (clapping) for a friend of his.
