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…

Normally I wouldn’t give much exposure to the latest leadership speculation stories, arising as they seem to do regularly in the days leading up to the latest Newspoll. But Tanner’s intervention this week was notable not only for its timing but also for the issues that he raises. Not that he proffered any solutions.

I’ve also included some good analysis pieces following the past parliamentary fortnight, and pieces by Tingle and Jericho to remind us about the importance of the economy in all things political. There’s also a link to the AFR Magazine’s annual Power List (which as far as I can tell is outside the paywall.
