No Crap App: w/b 12 Nov 2012

The week that was…

The Royal Commission was big news this week, with some suggesting the debate over the confessional was an unnecessary distraction. The Australian’s Paul Kelly criticised it for focussing only on institutionalised child abuse, when so much of it occurs within the home. Elsewhere, Irvine and Jericho did their best to improve our economic literacy, Dunlop and Green continued their dissection of the media, and some writers lifted their eyes past Christmas to the 2013 federal election. Also included is a longer read from Linda Jaivin on writing.

The week that was….

This week’s collection may be controversial, considering that I’ve been more supportive than most in the online world of the way the MSM covered the PM’s blistering response to Tony Abbott.

Nevertheless, I’ve tried to provide a cross section of the best pieces which covered the event. I’ve also included quite a number of the end-of-the-week analyses which examine, among other factors, the disconnect between the MSM and “new media” responses. Also included are two thought-provoking pieces on the business of outrage that [now] pervades political discourse.

Finally, for those who’d like to spend a small part of their precious weekend thinking about something other than Slipper-gate and the PM’s speech, I’ve collected a number of great think-pieces to ponder.

The week that was…

As reflected in the links below, this week was dominated by the asylum seeker issue.

Some attention was also given to Abbott’s tendency to play fast and loose with the facts.

There was also a number of interesting think-pieces, which I’ve collected for you to enjoy and ponder.

The week that was….

It was Budget week, the political fallout from which is becoming known as the various post-Budget polls are published. The media devoted forests of column inches and Kilowatts of electrons to Budget reportage, analysis and opinion. I’ve collected here links to the best pieces immeditately after the budget and also from the end-of-week analysis.

Also listed are some interesting pieces from Antony Green and Mumble on the permutations of various impending elections. And an excellent piece from Jonathan Green about the changed nature of political debate.
