Zero comfort

Your degree of disquiet over the week’s revelations probably depends on how comfortable you are with being bullshitted by those in authority.

That’s Mick Ellis talking about the Essendon v ASADA case.

Magnificent – we need more people with that attitude.

    The truth of the matter aside…
    Isn’t it refreshing to stumble upon a journalist that can report in a coherent manner?
    I do not follow the AFL but since the first day, when those two grandstanding pollies first fronted the media, the bullshit meter was off-scale.

    Grateful if you could make that a liberty quotation.

    Sports show host talking to journalist on the telly on Sunday morning.
    They fell over each other to agree that “nothing new” came out of the court case and Essendon was wasting it’s money because the “show cause” notices would just be re-issued.
    They simply glossed over the possibility that Middleton could possibly rule against ASADA/ Fat Andy/Slick Gil and co.
    It seemed quite surreal that they could be so dismissive of the shenanigans revealed in court …. until you realise that the “journalist” is a full time employee of the AFL and the sports show host is the brother of the AFL CEO.

    However, if we’re looking for villains, it’s also fair to say that this story would have turned out a great deal differently had two po-faced Labor MPs not taken it upon themselves to air a series of poorly substantiated allegations attached to general disquiet about the ethics and rationale of “anti-ageing” clinics and the biggest bogy of all – motorcycle gangs – for dubious political purposes.

    Indeed.

    Be good to see the Australian replace Patrick Smith with this bloke.

    Report in the Oz yesterday on Abbott’s interview where he bagged the ALP for this stunt. Most telling was the final line of the report …
    “Jason Clare and Kate Lundy were contacted but delined to comment”.
    Oh?
    They had plenty to say in February 2013. Surely if they had rock-solid evidence of the “Blackest Day” they would be only too happy to talk.

    Gillard/Clare/Lundy have not been held accountable. ALP/MSM saved them again.
