Media briefs: Rudd gaga on AW … Crusher everywhere … Fox pundit defiant …

Kevin Rudd goes radio gaga on 3AW ... how the front pages covered Barack Obama's victory ... a glum night for the pundits at Fox News ...

Rudd goes radio gaga. Since his February leadership challenge fell flat, political obsessives have watched with much mirth as Kevin Rudd ups his media appearances each time Julia Gillard is out of the country. This week has been no different. While the PM has been talking up her Asian Century vision in Laos, Rudd has had an intimate chat with old mate Phillip Adams and served as a US election pundit on Channel Nine. Now, the PM-in exile has gone one better by making his debut as a regular commentator on 3AW talkback host Neil Mitchell’s top-rating program.

“We will talk about the issues that matter to people,” Mitchell wrote on his blog this morning. “We will talk about leadership, ideas, what touches you and what needs to be done. I have tried for several years now to get Julia Gillard on the program regularly. She continues to avoid me, that is her right. So be it. But despite that, these debates need to be held.” — Matthew Knott
