Stanhope gets gold star opinion from CT

By Thumper 21 November 2005 7

Some times one is at a loss to decide whether the Canberra Times actually reports the news, or simply champions those who it supports.

Take this offering for example regarding Mr Stanhope (obviously the good guy according tho the CT), Bob Browne (also a good guy), and a nasty evil Liberal senator (in the gospel according to the CT)

In fact, after reading I wonder if one of the Comrade’s staffers submitted it.

Anyway, it the story itself is nothing revealling with the Comrade voicing his concerns about the new terrorist laws.

However, this caught my eye;

‘Gold star performance from Stanhope well-supported by an impressive trio: chief solicitor Peter Garrison, ACT Human Rights and Discrimination Commissioner Helen Watchirs, and Acting chief executive of ACT Department of Justice and Community Safety Elizabeth Kelly’

And this is unbiased reporting? Does this have something to do with Kerces previous comments about the CT?

Haha. Strange you say that Kerces. Just this past Sunday I was saying to my missus that the CT was starting to look a lot like CityNews…

Oh then tie me down with a squid’s tenticle and whip me with the bleached tail of stoat…

Only things I recall recently are this about freelancers, which was written by Caz, or this in which I complement them on their new website. And paperboy complained about not getting his paper, which had nothing to do with the editorial staff.

I’d say I’ve been much more scathing of CityNews in general.

I think someone needs to cut the puppets strings…

Oh, I can’t remember exactly….

Something about freelance journos and the lack news/ poor reporting by the Canberra Times.
