Media briefs: saving Peppa … ABC friends… Origin mix-ups …

Queensland has won the State of Origin! Well, so says the Tele. Plus other media tidbits of the day.

With friends like these. There are Parliamentary Friends of Science, Parliamentary Friends of Israel and even Parliamentary Friends of Men’s Sheds in our august chambers of government, but until now, there hasn’t been a Parliamentary Friends of the ABC. The ABC could use friends right now — its managing director faced a grilling in estimates yesterday and a prime ministerial slap-down in The Australian this morning, so he’ll be glad 65 members of parliament turned up to the inaugural meeting of the Parliamentary Friends of the ABC on Tuesday night.

    Why wouldn’t Turnbull want to save Peppa – they have so much in common.
    To save scratchin’ around, there’s porkies for a start?

    Hockey – I’m reminded of that other Il Duce – Mussolini – who led his followers in that March on Rome …… from Milan?

    Who would have thought, a pre-smokin’ Joe may have changed his beliefs but not his ability to lie.

    Turnbull for PM! Sure as an economic dry and shill for industry, cuts under his administration would likely be even deeper and more inequitable, and concessions to his favourite industries would be even more shameless (see destruction of the NBN as a prime example). But he’d do it all with wit and class and make us feel giggly and warm and cultured even as he shreds the social fabric.
