#123 - The Siege

Be First but first be something something

  • How Australia Covered The Sydney Siege
  • The Daily Telegraph goes with provocative speculation while the gunman still has people hostage
  • TV News helpfully broadcast police actions so that the gunman can see what they’re doing
  • 24 Hour Obsessive Coverage must be very tempting to the next nutter who wants to execute people live on TV (Odds of media recognising they went too far and putting something in place so as not to inspire the next one: zero)
  • Media coverage of Sydney siege shameful

#121 - Message Delivery Failure

This week on Something Wonky we bid farewell to the Napthine government in Victoria, attempt a reset for Tony Abbott, and ask Christopher Pyne to stop texting us. Australia Versus Humanity looks even grimmer than usual as Scott Morrison’s bill is on the verge of passing. And Stop The Press asks whether stalking six year old girls is in the national interest.

#120 - In a Barnacled Canoe Without a Paddle

This week on Something Wonky, the not cuts set to cost the ABC over a quarter of a billion dollars, the commercial media demonstrates why we need the ABC. Australia Versus Humanity wonders if anyone gets paid to listen to Something Wonky? And The Focus Group checks out the Senate, Canoeing for Dummies and digging holes with Gina, before we finish up with a Victorian election wrap up.
