Media briefs: Devine retribution … welcome Independent Australia … terror! (or not) …

Croats v Tony Jones ... Guardian still bleeding ... car bomb terror (or not) ...

Devine providence. Last night’s Media Watch parsed a story by Miranda Devine last week that claimed teachers at a NSW school had been asked not to refer to students using gendered terms.

Teachers at a leading Sydney all-girls school have been asked to stop calling students “girls”, “ladies” or “women”, but to use “gender-neutral language instead,” the front page splash claimed.

    “Guardian tries to stop the bleeding.”

    I read the Guardian Australia site every day and would happily subscribe if I could do so in $AUD. But I can’t so I don’t. The Conversation, Crikey and Inside Story all seem happy to receive my $AUD support.

    A car lit on fire hurtling into the entrance of my place of work, would terrorise me. I really don’t think the use of the word terror or even terrorism in this case is inappropriate. However, linking it to a group, race or religion would be.
