ABC 'should be shut down today' | Sky News Australia (107)

The ABC has participated in what may be one of the greatest medical scandals in history, according to Sky News host Rowan Dean.\n\n“This week we learned Hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug touted by President Donald Trump months ago as a potential prevention against the coronavirus, works,” Mr Dean said.\n\n“He was right.\n\n“It has successfully lowered mortality rates for hospitalised coronavirus patients by 50 per cent.\n\n“It would appear a very cheap drug that saves lives has for months been denigrated by the left wing media and the chief coronavirus expert on the ABC.\n\n“The sneering and patronising voice of the ABC paid for by your money and they were wrong.\n\n“Because of Trump derangement syndrome.\n\n“The left loathes Trump so much it totally blinds them to anything he says, even when what he says could potentially save thousands of lives.”\n

The ABC has participated in what may be one of the greatest medical scandals in history, according to Sky News host rowandean.

rowandean Lol. Shut down Murdoch first

jeff_laycock rowandean Says Murdoch media

QAnonAust rowandean It’s bizarre. How much TDS do you have where you are listening to paid leftist anchors whose job it is to lie and say everything opposite of Trump that you think it’s ok to lie about a medication that could save a life.

rowandean This is crap! WHO already proved it's NOT working. ABC and SBS are way better and more trusted than Skynews.

QAnonAust rowandean So many here not prepared to hear the info because of the person delivering it. Like TDS MK2. How small minded and exactly why we as a hunan race can, and have been, so badly manipulated.

Labor hesitant to claim 'ugly win' in Eden-Monaro (100)

Federal Labor resists the urge to claim victory in the marginal electorate of Eden-Monaro, with their candidate, Kristy McBain, projected to win a slim majority of votes in the tight by-election.

Labor hesitant to claim 'ugly win' in Eden-Monaro

Who wrote this shit?

What a hair-brained title. Try' Local woman beats pork-barrelling, corrupt, absent LNP and claims victory in Eden Monaro.' If you're gonna be biased, you might as well be factual.

Unnatractive person wrote that headline

Really.... ‘Ugly Win” is this Skynews

Dear Ita please stop drinking the LNP Koolaid. There was nothing ugly about this win. The LNP are very much on the nose because they are only about neglect, hate and lies.

Kanye West announces shock presidential bid (89)

Rapper and songwriter Kanye West has declared he is running for President of the United States.

.kanyewest 2020 is on.

kanyewest This guy is a wack job don't give him any attention

kanyewest He must need more attention

kanyewest As brain dead as the current one.

kanyewest

kanyewest A strategic move Trump is losing massively in the black & young voter base. A huge portion of Kanye's fan base is, you guessed it. A vote for Kanye takes away a vote for Biden, Therefore closing the gap Trump needs. Given certain requirements Kanye needs, this is doubtful at best

Eden-Monaro can be spun as a win for both sides — but only one will end up in Parliament (81)

A status quo result in the hotly contested Eden-Monaro by-election has simultaneously strengthened Anthony Albanese's leadership of the Labor Party while giving Scott Morrison a shot in the arm, Jane Norman writes.

ANALYSIS: Eden-Monaro can be spun as a win for both sides — but only one will end up in Parliament

A win for both sides!!! What drivel the ABC comes up with. Morrison & LNP, despite their pork-barrelling, lost. This is at a time when the PM has hogged airtime & shut Parliament to avoid accountability. Enough people have woken up to the Liberal rorts & broken promises!

yeah nah, there really is only one winner, and I can't even think of the name of the person the Libs had running. Who was it again?

I put FrightfulFiona last for a wide range of liberalaus' sins, not least because of what they've turned ABCaustralia into. abccuts EdenMonaroVotes

I didn't know you were in the business of spin. Actually ... auspol EdenMonaroVotes ScottyFromMarketing MSM

But some are more winners than other.

Justice for what? A bunch of professional activists with hardly a job between the lot of them, made up of over privileged white kids trying to tell their benefactors how to live their lives, thugs for hire.

When will SBS report on the abuse & paedophilia committed by aboriginal men.
