Yesterday Zaky Mallah’s controversial appearance on Q&A prompted the kind of chronic overreaction we’ve come to expect from the government; Liberal backbencher Alex Hawke accused the ABC of “sedition,” while Tony Abbott asked the broadcaster: “whose side are you on?”
Taking their cue, every hack Murdoch editor in the land duly cranked out a front page this morning literally equating Australia’s national public broadcaster to a terrorist cell that throws gay people off buildings and beheads hostages on film.
The Courier-Mail, which has form in the disgusting-headline department, magically managed to come up with the exact same idea as their cousins down south in Melbourne.
Not to be outdone in pure crazy, the Tele knocked up a double-page spread featuring Tony Jones palling around with his ISIS mates on the Q&A panel. If you’re unemployed, just know that vastly untalented people are able to get stable work doing shit like this.
