When The Fourth Estate Became The Fifth Column

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

Australian law requires the news media to be impartial at election time. In 2010 before an election the media blew this out of the water, by prostituting themselves to Kevin Rudd, inviting him to perform like a trained seal on every TV show imaginable. This came unstuck though, when Rudd's...

BULL IN A CHINA SHOP

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

It’s hard to describe Jeff Kennett to anyone lucky enough not to have lived in Victoria during his regime. So, let me say that if you could roll Attilla the Hun, Adolph Hitler, George W. Bush and Tony Blair into one, what you would have would be a man with great subtlety, tact, decorum,...

A WORTHLESS HERITAGE

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)
