Media Circus: Vegemite Chocolate edition

The very idea is undoubtedly an Abomination unto Nuggan, and Ed Milliband would probably make a mess of eating any. Then Bill Shorten would say something graceless about the whole event, while the SBS will commission a penetrating social commentary documentary regarding the underlying issues complete with a clickbait teaser.

What’s piqued your media interests lately?

As usual for media circus threads, please share your bouquets and brickbats for particular items in the mass media, or highlight cogent analysis elsewhere, on any current sociopolitical issue (the theme of each edition is merely for discussion-starter purposes – all current news items are on topic!).

  1. In other unlikely news, Julie Szego has written a good and well researched article which reads like she knows what she’s talking about for once, instead of just punching hippies/feminists/muslims. Wonders never cease! In face, I have to say the article kicks serious butt and I might have to reassess my low opinion of Szego. (It also speaks to the unavoidable fact that some writers will be excellent on some topics and fail on others; you can’t often get a perfect all round writer.) Via Bluemilk
