Quote of the Year 2012 is a tie between Ms Alberici and Mr Abbott:
- Emma Alberici: “Virtually every commentator in the land is echoing the thoughts of the Opposition on this one. “
- Mr Abbott on #AshbyConspiracy: This is a tawdry state of affairs, to say the least.
This shows our esteemed mainstream media at work. It is a study in how the press makes sausages.
We have our very own Australian Watergate minus investigative journalism. What happened? Where did it go?
Does mainstream journalism still exist or is it now left to the Fifth Estate, social media, blogs, twitter to do their work.
