Welcome to Crikey’s weekly news quiz.

This week gave us the messy and acrimonious conclusion to former attorney-general Christian Porter’s defamation case against the ABC, the grimly inevitable extension of lockdown in Melbourne, and the ongoing disaster of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in aged care around the country.

But just how closely have you been paying attention? Test yourself in our tough quiz.

Give this a read before you play: The answers are free text — so just type in the answer and press enter or click “choose”. You’ll be told if you’re right or wrong via a little pop-up, along with some context. To get to the next question, just scroll down in that pop up box until you see a big pink “next” button, and click it.

Answers are not case sensitive. We’ve tried to make it as fair as possible, so if a question has multiple correct answers (e.g. Prime Minister Scott Morrison being as correct an answer as Scott Morrison) we’ve done our best to include them all. But the safest bet if you’re dealing with a person is to not include a job title, and don’t use full stops at the end of your answer. Have fun and good luck!

I subscribe to Crikey because I believe in a free, open and independent media where news and opinions can be published that I can both agree with and be challenged by.

As a Crikey subscriber I always feel more informed and able to think more critically about issues and current affairs – even when they don’t always reflect my own political viewpoint or lived experience.
