Generally, I’m eschewing purchasing News Limited titles, but I did take a look at The Australian dead tree edition last week, and was frankly bored by the laudatory column inches about the wonderful and measured performance of the New Government, and what a Great Speaker Bronwyn Bishop will be.
There might be a market for right wing red meat, but I don’t know if there’s much of a market for this stuff.
Notoriously, the Daily Telegraph claims that it is just reflecting what its readers want in its political slant.
So, if – as they say – it’s the Bible of Western Sydney, how did they do?
Let’s say there are 16 electorates in Western Sydney broadly defined. A Facebook friend of mine pointed out that prior to the election, 13 were Labor and 3 LNP. Now there are 9 Labor and 7 LNP, with 4 of those won by less than 2000 votes.
That seems more like a normal swing of the pendulum than anything else.
In other news, News is not doing so well.
