The week that was…

It was a fascinating week for those of us interested in the future of the Australian media. Collected here are quality pieces on what the changes mean for News Ltd, Fairfax and print media more generally.

Also collected are pieces on the Coalition’s political strategy, how the Prime Minister is faring, and the Rio+20 meeting.

The week that was…

It’s been hard to avoid salacious stories on the Slipper/Thomson sagas this week, but I’ve included a couple of the more thoughtful pieces. The one from Mark Latham on human frailty is a must read. Likewise Tony Wright’s reminiscences about the good ole days. Otherwise there are some great pieces on the budget, the future role of unions and Kelty’s speech at the ACTU Congress.

Lenore Taylor, George Mega and Andrew Probyn look more closely at the Opposition, former ALP apparatchik and Senator Stephen Loosely writes on the media storm that pollies now have to contend with, while John Warhust reminds us what the polls are really saying.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, the 730 interview with Ken Henry is over on the Longer Reads page.

The week that was…

This week’s political media contained two debates that couldn’t be more diametrically opposed. At one end was the debate over what the Government should do about Slipper. At the other, disagreement raged over the Reserve Bank’s judgement (and still continued over the need for a surplus).

The most sensible of the Slipper pieces are here (plus one that spells out the risks for Abbott). Also listed are those that most clearly explain the economic issues. LaTingle talks about the upcoming Budget. And there’s a good piece from former WA Premier Geoff Gallop on the future of the ALP.
