Yesterday I was a little surprised to see a high profile puff piece in the Canberra Times in which Markus Mannheim all but fellated Katy Gallagher the “No Fuss” Minister and told us heart warming stories about her kiddies.
“I wonder”, I thought to myself, “what it is the CT is getting in return for this bilge? Padded advertising? Some sort of exclusive?”
This morning the other shoe has dropped with Markus getting advanced notice of a pay deal for the ACT PS.
Oddly enough the Government is giving the CT a clear run on the story with no media release available at the time of writing.
Sure to sell a lot of papers, lucky he was in the Government’s good books with a bit of news like this going around.
