The internal conflict between Sydney Swans player, Kieran Jack, and his parents should not be news. Whoever decided Grand Final week was a good time to air private grievances showed pretty poor judgement, but the media’s choice to to rehash this again having already published an article about it midyear is particularly tacky.
Speaking of things that should not be in the news, any article about The Bachelorette and any sentence or question that infers a linkage between renewable energy and the South Australian power blackouts, all fall under the same heading.
You would think it is pretty obvious that non-renewable energy power stations are equally useless when transmission towers are knocked down by cyclonic winds, but that is an overly generous interpretation of both the intelligence and integrity of some of our politicians. The only newsworthy takeaway from this event was that it made clear just how beholden the ABC, especially chief political reporter, Chris Uhlmann, is to the government and its subservience to the coal industry.
