Sign of the times: Star Observer to monthly. From April 17, the nation’s leading gay, lesbian (etc) print publication will move from a weekly to a monthly print run. Star Observer, which has been around in Sydney since 1979 and has a circulation of 18,000, is distributed for free along the east coast. It’s website reaches up to 40,000 people day.

CEO and publisher Daniel Bone told radio station Joy FM this morning that, given more people visit the publication online, it makes sense to focus less on news and more on long-form features in the print publication. “We’re looking at expanding format of print publication so stories have the space they need, and we’re looking at increasing the number of people we have as opinion writers and commentators from the broader community,” he said.

    Funny? Abbott taking Kenny’s side in this matter – tying it to “ABC accountability:funding”?

    [“Taste”? After his, along with the rest of the party’s, eager appearance en masse at that Tea Party “Ditch the Bitch” soiree on the lawn in Canberra? Was he on 2GB when he handed down this disposition? Was it the Alan Jones (moving force behind that knees-up) show?]

    Abbott on 2GB – employer of Jones (organiser of that rally) – “… government money should be spent sensibly; and defending the indefensible is not a very good way to spend government money. Next time the ABC comes to the government looking for more money, this is the kind of thing we would want to ask some questions about.”?
    Abbott’s definition of:-
    “indefensible”? Like the party’s en masse appearance at that rally?
    “sensible spending”? Like subsidising his own grand-standing self-promotional “charity” “poli-pedal” and book promos?

    Considering that the last 3 years were spent defaming, when not simply lying about a government, wonder why no-one thought of suing mudorc?
