Maybe your sudden and extreme lurch to the right just makes them look further away than you previously thought they were

Dead right djebel and it's not just TV. If you want real, diverse info and even entertainment turn on ABC local radio. Anyone who hasn't discovered Richard Fidler's Conversations is missing an absolute gem. 

The ABC and Fairfax have also joined forces in numerous in-depth investigations important to the community including underpayment of wages to migrant fruit pickers and 7Eleven workers, student visa rorting, CommInsure, the recent Chinese influence story etc etc

The ABC's poll figures across a range of areas are numbers Murdoch could only dream about. You can find results on their website iirc.

Meanwhile, Breitbart has toned down the madness, under advertiser pressure, and their cucks don't like it.

Breitbart want Congressional and White House media accreditation They have had temporary WH access, but not Congress who have shelved their application indefinitely, probably due to Gorka and Bannon having a percieved conflict of interest. These days Breitbart are trying to portray themselves as mainstream In the current bizarre environment who can tell?

If it was meant to be so serious it's hilarious. Then again some cons believe that any reasoned argument or analysis which doesn't fit their extremely narrow perspective is "left wing" bias - or fake news as the narcissistic, lying "head of the free world" would say.

Listening to a broadcast of the very beginning of the ABC and the reason it exists is basically because all the Newspapers at the time were conservative and had a serious bias toward the Liberals or whatever they were known as prior to the ABC coming into existence.

The Newspaper owners were dead against the ABC coming into being and demanded that they pay copyright fees for any of the news that they took from papers.

They were also not allowed to have a nightly news bulletin until after 8pm so they did not eat into the afternoon editions readership.

you pair of dunces...stop exagerating and being outraged at what i said. i said...

the smh has lurched left. thats all i said. Nothing about the media landscape, right wing media or domination, narrative or agenda.

check their commentary on israel/palestine now. a massive shift, given anything that wasnt pro israel was anti semitic. the smh was as glued to israel as murdoch is. thats the most glaring example. and thats a good shift imo. so what agenda have i got?

And if you dont believe me...then you dont believe former smh journo mike west. who says the same.

I'm not outraged, I'm not even surprised after reading more of your comments elsewhere. I assume you've been at a con temple learning the dark arts for many months?

I don't know what West said,  but if his redundancy is anything to go by it surely means a shift to the RIGHT. If FF loses a few more of his calibre they will disappear up their own fundamentals and that will be both a huge shame and a huge blow to democracy - yes democracy.

Priests without hard-ons. There's some social engineering I'd love to see. Offended? Put your offence to better use - such as understanding minorities, discrimination, etc.  Conservatives have been engaged in social engineering since the year dot. Understand that and you're one step along the way to getting some balance. How do the old teachings go again? Do unto others...  Walk a mile...
