Today in Media Files, the newspapers have preempted tonight's NBN Four Corners episode with a very broad definition of an "exclusive", and Fairfax's Michael Bachelard has written an extraordinary piece about his experience reporting on the Exclusive Brethren.

Exclusive watch. NBN exclusives are coming thick and fast today. The ABC's Four Corners tonight will be looking at the NBN, marking the halfway-point in its rollout. And as well as the regular promotion of the story on other ABC programs this morning, the newspapers also have their own "exclusives" ahead of the program. The Australian's exclusive breaks down the costs of the NBN at different sites -- details also in a front-page story in the Australian Financial Review this morning (but not tagged "exclusive").

One thought on “NBN frenzy … Exclusive Brethren v Michael Bachelard … The revolving door

  1. MAC TEZ

    If ever there was a tax dodge posing as a religion the EB are it. I’ve known a few ex-members who were happy to get out (although disappointed at being cut off from family members still in) and have had a fair few dealings with current EBs, there a quite a lot of them in my neck of the woods. Back in the day the women & girls all wore scarves and the men wouldn’t go near a mobile phone,that’s all changed now; the blokes were missing out on work without a mobile and I think the gals were being mistaken for Muslims…heaven forbid !
