It is easy maths: fewer enthusiasts equals news coverage. And, from Australia that formulation has caused federal politics dominating the information.

We have been left with a press beating off bulletin after bulletin in the political areas of COVID-19: battle (closed boundaries!) And administrative collapse (quarantine! Aged care!) . Take the morning’s Australian Financial Review, filled with”devastated” companies,”aghast” and”lashing” Victoria’s lock-down expansion. However, as Peggy Lee would ask: is that all there is actually a pandemic?

There has been some pushback for this. News Corp — that frequently stumbles across the line between liability and gotcha journalism — was criticised for information about attribute. Herald Sun colleagues are convicted of hijacking Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ press conferences. Twitter has reacted using #Thisisntjournalism, and people opinions indicates that the majority of men and women trust their particular premier above their regional News Corp tabloid.
