Media Circus: No More Knights And Dames Edition

Although isn’t it lovely that we do at least now have a Queen of the Sport of Kings? Seriously, cannot stop watching her “everyone else get stuffed” moment.

Kudelka nails the much more important announcement that this week’s distractions have successfully pushed off the media cycle’s agenda.

Hooray!(Thanks Kudelka, from today’s The Australian.)

Description/Transcript:
IT’S GOOD TO BE KING: Prime Minister Turnbull is portrayed in regal robes and crown addressing a crowd from a castle balcony.
Panel 1: Turnbull muses softly: “Hmm, I may raise the GST to 15% …” Crowd responds: “Pardon?”
Panel 2: Turnbull declaims: “I MEAN I’M ABOLISHING KNIGHTS AND DAMES!” Crowd cheers: “HURRAH!” Turnbull mutters: “and I’m kicking around raising the GST to 15%”.

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!).
