Some people don’t read Crikey – they prefer the fake news. Sad!
 
Donald Trump
It’s the news that matters, delivered by skilled journalists with utmost integrity. It sounds awful.
 
Mia Freedman
Every day I look forward to Crikey arriving in my inbox, and calling up the right wing to find out whether I’m allowed to read it or not
 
Malcolm Turnbull
Crikey is the ideal website: it doesn’t leak, it doesn’t spill, and reading it is always an enormous challenge for me.
 
Tony Abbott
Crikey is just another of the fascist Left outlets who have silenced me. For more on Crikey’s repressive regime, watch The Bolt Report, read my column in tomorrow’s Herald Sun, tune in to 2GB.
 
Andrew Bolt
People ask me where I get the ideas for my songs. My answer is: Crikey. Every single time.
 
Taylor Swift
Crikey is a fabulous outlet for the very best in news and opinion, but what’s more important is how Malcolm Turnbull has to “Cry Key”, because he can’t seem to unlock the door to good policy. See what I did there? Guys?
 
Bill Shorten
Without Crikey, I’d go mad
 
Mark Latham
