Anne unexpectedly tough press conference Yesterday's prime ministerial press conference for the aged care royal commission report was a torrid affair -- especially as it didn't actually discuss any of the content of the report.
The impromptu press conference gave reporters half an hour to get to Kirribilli House to ask questions about a report that none of them had had the chance to read. So how satisfying it was that Anne Connolly, a long-time ABC aged care reporter -- and thus very much across the detail of the submissions -- was there to punch a hole in the whole shoddy edifice:
Connolly: This report was delivered last Friday. You gave us half an hour to attend a press conference. You tabled the report when we were here. How can we ask questions to know what's relevant in the report without knowing what's in it?
