ABC offices raided by police. Queensland police have raided the ABC’s Brisbane office over a series of stories based on leaked cabinet documents. Executing a search warrant, the ABC reported yesterday that cabinet secretary Leighton Craig had complained to the police about the leak, saying they had been “improperly accessed”. The stories by Mark Willacy and Alexandra Blucher detailed the decision making by former Premier Campbell Newman’s government to cut the public service, including cuts to oversight of the coal-seam gas industry and how the government sold off a profitable climate change company. The journalists’ union, the MEAA, has condemned the raid, saying it’s an “outrageous attack on press freedom”.

    Re Lameline – and the one-eyed, tone-deaf Alberici (who ‘doesn’t watch Jones’ shows’ – according to that “promo” – or listen to anyone else, lest they challange her innate infallibility?) is going to be Michelle’s “chief economics correspondent”?
    …. “Dave Buik come on down!”?
