My Latest Twitter Updates

  • Catching up on Nick McKim's interview on #PMAgenda – he seems agitated by the prospect of the ALP supporting confidence in Libs. Sidelined? #
  • Can anyone confirm: what did Bartlett say about providing support to Libs in the event of a confidence motion? #
  • A Twitter vs other media moment for me this afternoon. No radio coverage of Bartlett's press conference but plenty of live tweeting. #
  • I think News Radio had the first report of Bartlett at around 2.30pm. Highlights parochial local coverage of ABC and commercials. #
  • Whereas if it had been a sports event I would have been inundated with blanket coverage. A lack of serious news values at work… #
  • A dismissive laugh? A wait-and-see laugh? … RT @latikambourke: he laughed. #
  • @sspencer_63 Perhaps I'm just not the parochial kind… but News Radio should be covering this kind of thing. National broadcaster? in reply to sspencer_63 #
  • @sspencer_63 At least @Colvinius and @AMWorldTodayPM still offers serious news coverage – Tas is lead item. in reply to sspencer_63 #
  • @Colvinius Hehehe… I thought your voice sounded different… well, they're coping very well without you! in reply to Colvinius #
  • I think I'm grumpy with the media tonight because I had to lecture my hairdresser about his tendency to discuss Tiger Woods and Lara Bingle. #
  • @bryanhogan He was wielding the scissors so I didn't berate… in reply to bryanhogan #
  • I knew I should have stayed out… Channel 7 "news" leads with a story about Channel 9 muscling in on their Good Friday telecast… #
  • And Neil Mitchell isn't happy about it… but the Premier is supporting the "local appeal". There's that parochialism again… #
  • And the next most important "news" on Channel 7 is a "rioter" having a go at a TV cameraman who called him a terrorist… #
  • And now Channel 7 "news" shows a Dallas (?) resident abusing a TV crew for doing a story on a drive-by shooting… #
  • But now Channel 7 is onto the serious stuff. There's a swarm of wasps on the loose in Melbourne… #
  • And after the break on Channel 7 "news", Tony Abbott denies he's a "drama queen"… #
  • A clip from Casablanca, Emerson singing "You Must Remember This", Abbott kissing a baby… and that was the political "news" on Channel 7… #
  • @sammarks I treat myself to this experience every couple of weeks just so I can be one of Joe Hockey's "real" people… in reply to sammarks #
  • @mareenotmarie If the wasps had pursued the camera crew it would have added a touch of consistency to the bulletin's theme… in reply to mareenotmarie #
  • @theburgerman What's this casual look with your avatar? Are you having an identity crisis? in reply to theburgerman #
  • Sneaky police road toll tactics, internet predators, Olivia Newton-John's missing ex, and unclaimed lottery millions… Today-Tonight… #
  • @theburgerman So you're looking for a job with Channel 7 news? in reply to theburgerman #
  • @theburgerman There appears to be an epidemic of people attacking TV camera crews. It's very serious. in reply to theburgerman #
  • @lyndons Surely I'm allowed to move outside my demographic once in a while? in reply to lyndons #
  • Okay, in an ecumenical spirit, I'm taking in A Cretin Affair. It looks like those judges have been handing out lenient sentences again… #
  • Coming up on ACA, Australia's worst local government money drain… but first here's Australian Suburban Stunners… #
  • @theburgerman Well, it depends what they do when Parliament meets but I'm not persuaded Bartlett has a sound strategy. A bird in the hand… in reply to theburgerman #
  • And 97.5% of Today Tonight viewers say that there should be a total ban on refugees seeking asylum by boat… #
  • I'm not making this up… #
  • @crazyjane13 I'd be prepared to watch some flagellation… in reply to crazyjane13 #
  • @crazyjane13 I'm doing a PhD in Media Studies? in reply to crazyjane13 #
  • @nick_osborne Just the voice of the people… in reply to nick_osborne #
  • @theburgerman But I wouldn't have thought giving up the ability to advise the Governor is a proven technique. He may have a cunning plan… in reply to theburgerman #
  • @crazyjane13 That was a joke…! in reply to crazyjane13 #
  • @theburgerman It's plausible but not strong. He should go to Parlt as Premier & see if McKim is prepared to support Hodgman on no-confidence in reply to theburgerman #
  • @theburgerman McKim was prevaricating like crazy on Agenda but he actually gave Bartlett the best advice: test your support in Parlt. in reply to theburgerman #
  • @crazyjane13 I may not be very bright but I'm not dumb enough to do a Media Studies course! in reply to crazyjane13 #
  • @theburgerman Hoping to crucify him over the weekend? in reply to theburgerman #
  • @theburgerman If only we'd had cable TV in 1989 when the ALP and Greens voted Robin Gray out of office at 7am after an all-night debate. in reply to theburgerman #
  • Election-year tweeters: http://bit.ly/agEie0 – Peter Brent reports on his Parliamentary Library research on "new media". #
  • @theburgerman Don't bring Tony Abbott into this… in reply to theburgerman #
  • Zero-sum politics: http://bit.ly/aubjqL – Norman Abjorensen with some words of sense on unrepresentative swill. #
  • It says something about Twitter that when @LaurieOakes appears no-one is really prepared to believe it's him. #
  • @jkerrison And the more you say it, the more they won't believe you! Me, I'm waiting for @MalcolmFraser. in reply to jkerrison #
  • Oops… there is one, in New Zealand… #
  • A bad-tempered, indecisive, control freak? Gordon Brown, apparently. #730Report #
  • A wave of negative charisma? #730Report #
  • Green power surge: http://bit.ly/demj4D – Michelle Grattan on the Greens, post-Brown, pending Senate balance of power players. #
  • Little Winston dreams this is his finest hour: http://bit.ly/999xOx – Anne Summers on Abbott and Churchill. #
