Here is someone working for the ABC, from a Labor background as press secretary for Bob Hawke, who has written about the rise and fall of a Labor Prime Minister with all the distortions and omissions worthy of the most disingenuous right wing hack.
What caught this blogger out was that the Labor factions still had some life in them. But now that they are back in charge, it is reassuring to see that they do not after all.
Calls to support Wikileaks and uphold the public’s need to get access to information is a moot point, because there is little sign of anything that would know what to do with it.
That neither of the major parties have anything to say is implicit in Gillard’s call for a bipartisan committee to look into the issue.
Like the US State Department, the press were being fed by Labor power brokers.
It is not nice to see people in positions of power bullying members of the public who make use of the internet. But the content of what is going on has been distorted on all sides.
So who won the ideological war exactly?
