No Crap App: w/b 6 Aug 2012

The week that was…

This week both sides of the political divide sought to establish policy debates before parliament resumes next week. Almost counterintuitively, Abbott chose freedom of speech as his battleground while Gillard chose electricity prices. Grateful journos and commentators gleefully ran with both in an otherwise slow news week.

Towards the end of the week, political binoculars turned to the Spring parliamentary session, the end of which is traditionally the time to knock off an ailing leader.

Meantime, those interested in political journalism wondered how the media can note, even admire, but not challenge politicians’ manipulation of the truth.
