Media briefs: O’Brien uncut … mag launch …

Kerry O'Brien has unloaded on Prime Minister Tony Abbott, and says politics' "mindless obsession with control" is very destructive.

O’Brien uncut on speakers’ circuit. Kerry O’Brien, who gave his swansong as ABC election-night anchor earlier this month, is off the leash — he roasted Prime Minister Tony Abbott in a speech last night for being negative and defensive. O’Brien, who emphasised that he was giving his own views and not those of the ABC, said “three years of negative campaigning from opposition is not a healthy development”. Gough Whitlam’s former press secretary lamented the nature of modern politics and its “mindless obsession with control”. He described it as wrong, boring, destructive and sad.
