There’s hardly anybody in the MSM writing anything worth reading about the current situation, because there is nothing to do but wait until 3 men who don’t give a toss about Big Media make their minds up in their own sweet time (as they should). Nothing much has changed since Bernice’s post last week – they still have no idea how to cope with non-pavlovian politicians, other than to write about how terribly bad-awful-no-good-horrible-doubleplusungood politicians who don’t leap when the press-pack says jump really are.
So all the op-eds and pundits are just going around in rehashing circles and getting over-excited at any little thing that appears to put a nose just that tiniest further bit forward in the horse-race. (See Antony Green for the facts on the AEC’s 2PP vote count.)
So, what could the MSM be doing more profitably with the time of all those journo teams at the moment? Any suggestions? I for one would like to see much more positive coverage of what we can do to help the Pakistani flood victims.
