Crikey says: if the reports are correct, leave him alone

Paul Barry says the ABC should apologise -- but there's differing opinion. Why Malcolm Turnbull's rhetoric is music to News Corporation. The word from Tasmania -- stand by for a Liberal government. What's in a political party name? Gary Morgan's legal fight. Political interference in the arts. And life as a Big Issue vendor.

First Thorpie was in rehab as a drunk. Except he wasn’t. In fact, he had shoulder surgery, we were told. He left hospital and was fine. Then he wasn’t. He was spotted by a nosy cameraman appearing “disoriented” outside his house. Now he’s really in rehab, though for depression rather than alcohol abuse.

    agree with Crikey’s editorial comment.

  2. AR

    I couldn’t understand why AM, of all progs, would run as it did.

  3. CML

    Isn’t AM now hosted by Chris Ullmann? (I don’t listen to it these days.) If so, enough said! Obviously thinks he is still on 7.30, and we would all like a bit of gossip!!
    Crikey, you got it right this time!

    Tabloidisation – the ABC “whoring for ratings”. I don’t understand this current yearning for “relevance” afflicting it.
    You want to stand up, walk around while calling the news? Strain current affairs through your own prejudices – for “edgy”? I reckon you can end up looking like an insecure tart.
