I’ve long heard whinging about how the Canberra Times (aka The Crimes) has a bit of a political bias towards the Labor Party. I’ve been reading their website a bit lately and have noticed a strange trend. If the article is a positive Labor Party one, the comments field is open. If it’s negative, the comments are closed. However, the opposite is true for the Canberra Liberals – if the story is negative, the comments are open for all, but if the story is positive (which admittedly, can be rare), the comments are closed.
Now, I listen to ABC Newsradio in the mornings (666 AM) and the lady on there can seem a bit leftie, but Ross Solly at least comes across as fair and really lays into all pollies evenly. I don’t bother with 2CC.
Is this just my perception, or is something going on?
