Media Musings Blog Archive Budget Hoopla I look forward to the announcement of the federal budget each year with the same level of anticipation as I do a trip to the dentist.
It is inevitable that there will be at least a few days coverage on the health of the economy as well as which societal groups are budget winners and which groups lose out. Important but on the whole a bit bland. Prepared for the same, I did not expect the violent excitement splashed across the front page ofThe Australian on Wednesday. I am assuming that this depiction is due to Labor scrapping its plan to cut business taxes and instead redirect those funds into payment aimed at reducing the cost of living for low income families. Wow, reneging on a promise is never a popular political move but this cartoon coupled with the headline the rich, save the base seems just a little bit overboard. I not going to go into my own opinions on the budget, besides, I doubt anyone would want to read a second year journalism student cobbled together understanding of complex fiscal matters. However the coverage inThe Australian blew my general budget antipathy right out of the water. I understand that there is a delicate balancing act that burberry london outlet store must be played between balanced reporting and the commercial interests of a newspaper. But in this case it would seem that objectivity has been chucked straight out the window. We have a grand tradition of satyrical cartoons pulling the stuffing of puffed up politicians but this goes beyond that point. This ventures into that vague limbo just before the train pulls into propaganda station. We are left in no uncertain doubt about editorial opinion in regards to this budget. However, when editorial opinion is presented side by side with political reportage, the line between fact and opinion becomes blurred. This kind of biased coverage does not belong on the front page of a national newspaper of international repute. We can at least try to keep the journalistic scales relatively balanced. Do you think this budget coverage went too far? The extremes that news outlets are willing to go to at the moment to draw in readers is a bit ridiculous. I get the feeling that The Australian were being blatantly inflammatory to pick up the buzz it has been getting on blogs like The Vine and the (at least) four on this site. There no such thing as bad publicity after all. For a newspaper that stiffly conservative, it a very outlandish front page, and one I would have deemed as out of character. Opening with a cartoon? Really? It certainly something you expect to see on The Herald Sun. Not to say that The Australian is more reputable, they just generally more subtle. adidas Yu adds pandora jewellery australia to me. cheap true religion I heard a clap of thunder, purses and handbags lightning before the north face the thunder that road hilfiger online shop really tiffany and co bright, nike I burberry outlet in michael kors taschen the house gave dazzled eyes. true religion jeans outlet Then I heard someone nike outlet outside nike free shouting injured, beats headphones ran out to rescue the ray ban wayfarer injured.
