Make pollies pay for full price for their sangas

Crikey readers talk politicians' entitlements, why the film industry subsidy is a rort and privacy and healthcare.


Crikey says: On Tuesday we opened the email edition with the introductory line: “Paul Barry says the ABC should apologise — but there’s differing opinion.” That was slightly cheeky of us; on Media Watch Barry said that if the ABC was found to be wrong in its reporting it should “admit it, to find out how the mistake was made, and to make sure it will not happen again”. Not exactly a call for an apology. We’re happy to correct the record.

    Melinda Smith’s comments re Crikey’s seeking the name of a ‘mega star’ who attended RPH emergency were spot on.

    One day, Crikey’s calling for Ian Thorpe to be left alone, the next, seeking to invade another’s privacy re health issues. Hypocrisy, much?

    Ditto to Melinda Smith’s point.

    Crikey occasionally slips in forgetting who its readers are – we are refugees from News Corp & tabloid dreck in general. I suspect the overwhelming majority of us don’t want to see a photo of Thorpe eventually emerging from rehab nor do we give a rat’s which mega-star was admitted to a Sydney hospital. Because we’ll be bombarded with this fatuous guff from a plethora of other media sources whether we like it or not.

    Stay out of the sewer Crikey, continue to breathe clean air.
