ABC ‘pump propaganda to rubbish the government and inflict misery’: Kenny | Sky News Australia (397)

Sky News host Chris Kenny has criticised the ABC, saying the national broadcaster is using the taxpayers’ money to pump out “propaganda designed to make the government look bad and our country appear miserable”. \n\nThe Federal Government is preparing to evacuate about 200 Australians from the coronavirus-struck Diamond Princess cruise ship back to Darwin on Wednesday. \n\nWhile hundreds of Australians who were in quarantine on Christmas Island finally arrived home on Monday evening.\n\nMr Kenny the use of Christmas Island has been a “great option” to act as a quarantine centre.\n\nMr Kenny said the “usual suspects” lined up to criticise the government “and 'by extension their country” over this move. \n\n“Indeed, the ABC couldn't wait to run stories about how the China evacuees were unhappy with their conditions, how there was a cockroach … [and] slow internet speeds.\n\n“That's your taxes at work pumping out this propaganda, designed to make the government look bad and our country appear miserable”.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia

I don’t think anyone needs to give the government any help. As regards looking bad, the government is doing that all by itself. bushfiresaustralia CloverMoore sportsrorts Barnaby corruption Water AngusTaylor CashlessWelfareCard

Sky pumps out propaganda designed to protect paedophiles Apparently Chris Kenny & the rest of you are fine with that. Why?

That’s hilarious. Sky news doesn’t even WISH it could provide such excellent and useful investigative journalism as Four Corners and other programs on the ABC.

Australia without Holden 'like getting rid of all the kangaroos and koalas' (86)

Holden superfan Tony Dowsett shares his birthday with the first Holden car and is covered in tattoos celebrating the brand.

Australia without Holden 'like getting rid of all the kangaroos and koalas'

And meat pies

The LNP are working on that as we teeet..😡

It's like... Not at all the same...

Shit cars made by a shit company. When I got my first car in 1978 it had carpets, a heater, radio and 4 speed shift. Holdens had vinyl, no heater, no radio and 3 speed. That 'value' continued for decades, a dubious privilege we all paid for.

I have yet to see anyone riding around on a kangaroo

The NSW senator says an Indigenous Voice to Parliament that 'devolves power' away from Canberra should be easy for conservatives to support.

Liberal senator warns Indigenous Voice must not become 'Aboriginal political elite' auspol | michaelkoziol

michaelkoziol You mean a minority group with a very small voter percentage elevated to senior cabinet positions?....like the Nationals?

michaelkoziol Quiet Australians warns LNP members they must not be corrupt when they ignore Grant requirements in order to prioritise marginal electorates over assessing the applications on merit.

michaelkoziol Flap me, This coming from a member of the political elite. rofl.

michaelkoziol F.O

michaelkoziol What about this political elite voice? The top 250 companies avoid enough tax, each, every three months to pay Centrelink for each & every Australian for 5 years. If 1 company paid tax for 1 year. That's a UniversialBasicIncome for everyone for 20 years. auspol

In despair, I wondered how politics got so bad - then I looked at Twitter (44)

It wasn’t the schlock ravings of the lunar right that were scrolling down the screen. It was puerile, potty-mouthed missives from the “progressive” class.

Opinion: In despair, I wondered how politics got so bad - then I looked at Twitter CUhlmann

CUhlmann It is too much of a leap to extrapolate the reactions of a handful of opinionated people on twitter regarding a single story to explain the political behaviour of all Australians. I think too much weight is given to the opinions of angry or abusive people in Australia.

CUhlmann ummm. Nup! IStandWithPaul 's right to express himself and vote forever he bloody well likes. It's what makes Australia, Your elitism slip is showing.... So glad I cancelled my subscription and supported independents.

CUhlmann You have got to be kidding! Blaming social media, ie, frustrated and angry voices, for politics getting so bad! Politics = elected representatives, voted in by the people, ie, they are public servants.

CUhlmann No, CUhlmann, I'd suggest the quality & behaviour of too many politicians is what it's bad. Social media is a tool for many who were unheard to let these unprincipled, unethical & amoral arses know what they think. Journos like you don't help with 1 eyed views & acceptance of BS

Today Show suffers lowest ratings for 2020 (25)

Morning news show Today has suffered its lowest TV ratings for 2020, despite the return of Nine’s golden boy Karl Stefanovic.

Karl Stefanovic’s return to Today hasn’t delivered the ratings Nine had hoped, with the show slumping to a new low.

TheTodayShow needed to get rid of karlstefanovic & keep Lisa_Wilkinson. That was their first mistake.

Well, obviously Karl can’t understand why!

I hope they don’t change again. If anything get rid of Brooke bring back dicko. Don’t need the news lady (Karl and ally do it) sport dude is ok he’s like another Hemsworth 😂 karlstefanovic you can do it 💪

I love them all

What a load of hot 🐓 Keep this up and we won't have an ADF

Rory_Medcalf What about aid abetting a foreign military Indonesia who commits crimes against humanity in west papua ?Seperti halnya dengan militer Indonesia dan pemerintah yang korup akan berusaha untuk menyalahkan para korban.

Do we count swastika flags draped on range rovers?

The problem is that it’s been used for the last 50 odd years to mean OK. How can you determine if a hand position is being used maliciously?

In an unrelated incident, pictures of KKK members scuba diving 🤿 off Cairns are going viral. We need to stop the bigots - just like Jordan Peele’s “Hunters”! 🚫⚡️

The world is failing to protect children from the health dangers posed by climate change and poor diet, a landmark UN report said on Wednesday, warning that every child is under 'immediate threat'.

The human race is doomed, and it's not because of climate change or poor health...was the move Idiocracy supposed to be a prediction of the future..seems so!

Morrison will ‘lose the next election’ by committing to net zero emission by 2050 | Sky News Australia (20)

Sky News host Peta Credlin says Prime Minister Scott Morrison knows he would “lose the next election” by “signing up to a policy for net zero emissions by 2050, without knowing what it would mean for our country”. \n\nMs Credlin said everyone must understand net zero emissions would “mean a radical transformation”. \n\n“It won't just mean the end of using coal in this country, it will mean the end of our two biggest exports, coal and gas,” she said. \n\n“It won't just mean the end of cheap flights to Bali and Europe; it will mean the end of our third biggest export, education to all the foreign students who fly here, as well as tourism.\n\n“It won't just mean the elimination of farmers' herds; it will mean the virtual elimination of meat from Western diets.\n\nSometimes it's what you don’t do, rather than what you do… that's the real test of leadership,” she said.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia

Sky News host Peta Credlin says Prime Minister Scott Morrison knows he would “lose the next election” by “signing up to a policy for net zero emissions by 2050, without knowing what it would mean for our country”.

He sure will. Not just the election but our confidence in rationality. It would be lovely to be one of the trend setters but the country will fold.

How can anyone sign up for something as stupid as zero emission in 30 years time. Who knows and who even can suggest what 30 years in time can bring . This climate change is going/ gone beyond reasonable thinking and is becoming a laugh in their desperation for it to be believed

Yep, Morrison has lost the plot. The silent majority might decide to call it quits on the LNP. ScottMorrisonMP

You can't put a price on carbon, everything that stored carbon dioxide man has slowly taken away. Farmer & Forestry loggers need to replace the damage done by them.

When you realise decarbonising the economy is an opportunity not a threat, you what Germany’s doing...
