The week that was…

The main political events this week had a common underlying theme: craven politics barely hidden behind a tattered moral veil. Whether it was the Slipper/ Ashby saga (no links provided), asylum seekers or the future of Fairfax, those who made the loudest claims to integrity were often the ones most blatantly pursuing political ends.

The links provided this week on asylum seekers cover a broad range of considered pieces exploring the dilemma, while other links explore why Fairfax matters, the tricky concept called public interest, and a media owner’s right to set editorial policy.

Finally, there’s a preview from George Megalogenis on the carbon price, which comes into force on Sunday.

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.
