…from the quill of Antisthenes
Bellow is a part of Mr Andrew Bolt’s item on his blog yesterday. For those, who are still wondering why our Prime Minister is so afraid, we provide a link to the statutory declaration mentioned.
“The work being done to close down any scrutiny of Julia Gillard’s past relationship with a conman is downright sinister.
The Prime Minister has made repeated and inappropriate calls to the head of News Ltd demanding the censorship of articles and guarantees not to mention their contents again.
Fairfax Media has repeatedly banned broadcaster Michael Smith from discussing on air a statutory declaration about the conman and Gillard’s unwitting role. Smith has also been banned from interviewing on air the author of the stat dec, a former state president of the Australian Workers Union.
Now, the ABC has sacked Glenn Milne from Insiders for allegedly not meeting its editorial standards. The trigger for that decision was Milne’s column in The Australian on Monday, now removed from the Internet, in which he detailed some of the material.
Milne was meant to be on tomorrow’s Insiders. Now he is off the panel for good.
This shutting down of debate is sinister and shameful. Had John Howard tried it, there would be a riot in the Left. There should be a riot about it now. “
Do I need to comment?
