Meanwhile, Australian politics continued and some quality journalists kept their eye on the main game. Here’s the best of the week, plus a fabulous farewell piece from George Megalogenis.

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.
