Meanwhile at the CT

By johnboy - 20 October 2012 8

Having removed the people’s prerogative and declared the election over mid last week the Canberra Times journos have taken to interviewing themselves.

I can’t say how thrilled I am to learn that Katy likes Seinfeld and Zed cooks a decent roast.

What’s Your opinion?

So, who is more grumpy, the CT for looking ridiculous, or the ALP for the CT having given everyone a reason not to vote Labor two days out from the election?

Noel Towell and Rod Quinn should both be made redundant for this. Not only poor journalism, but yet another shred ripped from what little remains of the Canberra Times’ brand.

Indeed.

The CT appears to have given up on any pretence of partiality which, for a major national newspaper, is unforgivable.

These days the once proud flagship the HMAS Canberra Times is a rotting hulk in a forgotten backwater dock just waiting to either sink forever below the waves or be salvaged.

And one would suspect that salvage is now only a remote chance.

So tell me again why we need to bother with this voting business when we have the CT?

Now the CT are showing graphics of the outcome, with a note tucked down the botton saying:

(The spreadsheet is currently filled with random numbers; I’ll reset it before the polls close at 6pm.)

Don’t they already know the numbers?

no, because Masquara has been stealing fists full of votes from ballot boxes to prove that our democracy is under threat. See the thread “phillip green…” etc if you don’t get the reference.
