The BBC has seen fit to join in the Canberra bashing for our city’s birthday.
But if you needed any further proof of the dead tree daily’s miserable failure to serve this city I’d recommend this key to the soap dodger’s reporting:
“My friend put it well – Canberra is like going to grandma’s house,” says Jenna Clarke, life and entertainment editor of the Canberra Times. “Other Australian cities are doing brash, creative things but here everything is wrapped in plastic. It doesn’t mean it’s bad. Canberra is just very mature and knows what it’s doing.”
Actually Jenna there’s a lot of brash and creative things happening here. Your knowledge of them is a judgment I leave to the reader.
