NATION: Turnbull government fails Australians on energy and jobs "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Jobs? ABS records reveal that Turnbull and Abbott are the worst economic managers since Menzies. Wages have languished for four years. Conditions decline steadily. A quarter of Australian workers now have no leave entitlements whatsoever. A year ago, 716,600 Australians had no work at all but unemployment is no longer something the government mentions in public. Nor is it big on admitting a relentless decline in the quality of our working lives. The Coalition presides over record unemployment, underemployment, underpayment and the systematic casualising of work. But its on with the Cash Show. Its all vital part of the pantomime theatre of work in which a neoliberal government can worship in the church of the free market, yet take credit for its own benign intervention news.com.au: PM Malcolm Turnbull blasts State Premiers, ABC journalist over National Energy Guarantee A fired up Prime Minister today responded to the Premiers of Queensland, Victoria and South Australia who have already slammed the federal governments new National Energy Guarantee. Mr Turnbull said Australians were fed up with parties playing politics as their electricity bills soared. He made the remarks today after a fiery clash with an ABC journalist on breakfast radio where he once again dodged questions on whether the strategy would slash power bills $115 a year. The Prime Minister had earlier clashed with ABC journalist Sabra Lane on her AM program when asked whether he could guarantee prices would come down based on the modelling of the Energy Security Board. In the heated interview, Mr Turnbull accused Lane of disrespecting the distinguished Australians on the ESB when she questioned the price cuts and why the experts were being touted as the saviours of Australias energy market when they had overseen the last decade of disastrous policy. She claimed their bodies the Australian Energy Market Commission, the Australian Energy Regulator, and the Australian Energy Market Operator had overseen over-investment in poles and wires that had driven power bills up and the failure of the national energy grid to be fit for purpose today

Fake news or lousy reporting "IndyWatch Feed Tas"


A few weeks ago, there was another mass murder in the USA. This time the shooter, a 64-year-old male, holed himself up on the 32rd floor of a casino hotel complex in Las Vegas, Nevada and massacred 60, including himself, and injured more than 500 (at the time of writing). All the victims did wrong was attend a country music concert along with 22,000 or so other people on the Las Vegas casino strip.

While some may consider country music a crime, most Australians consider the apparent ease of gun ownership in the USA pure insanity. Both of these subjects have been done to death in the past and the reality is that even if the entire 24 million or so of us on this side of the Pacific told the USAs lawmakers they were crazy to allow the current lax gun laws to continue, it wouldnt make a scrap of difference. All we can really do to avoid a perceived safety risk is to choose to holiday in an area that you would feel safe in such as North Queensland or Tasmania, New Zealand or Canada the land of unarmed Americans with universal health care. (No, its not original, you can get the coffee mug or t-shirt here). As for country music well it aint gunna kill you!

What we should be concerned about is the reporting of the Las Vegas massacre as it does affect us and how we live. As you would expect, Facebook and Google reported the Las Vegas massacres on their newsfeed, as obviously, people were reporting the incident live on their social media accounts. Media outlets would also be looking at this traffic along with the reports from the police in the Las Vegas area. In this world of instant communication, there is an imperative to be first with the news in this case who was the person that committed this heinous crime and why did they do it?

Both Google and Facebook promoted incorrect information including the incorrect identification of the murderer.

Police have identified Stephen Paddock as the suspect who opened fire from a high-rise hotel room, killing scores and injuring hundreds more. But before authorities named the 64-year-old Nevada man, some on the far right falsely identified the man behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history as Geary Danley. Its unclear where exactly the hoax originated, but right-wing users aggressively pro...

Australian journalisms freak show: how a serious newspaper deals with its enemies "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Journalism is in crisis, were told constantly. But theres another journalism crisis that has been disrupting and polluting the Australian media for more than a decade, a crisis that has nothing to do with broken business models, Facebook or the rise of so-called fake news. This is the crisis of how a serious national newspaper has, for at least a decade, waged vicious, personal, biased editorial Holy Wars against its ideological, political and commercial enemies in the name of news, journalism and professional reporting. And not just once or occasionally, but often and serially

Australias $1 billion loan to Adani is ripe for a High Court challenge "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Australias $1 billion loan to Adani is ripe for a High Court challenge

Brendan Gogarty, University of Tasmania

Indian mining giant Adanis proposal to build Australias largest coal mine in Queenslands Galilee Basin has been the source of sharp national controversy, because of its potential economic, health, environmental and cultural risks.

These concerns were amplified this week when Indias former environment minister Jairam Ramesh told the ABCs Four Corners:

My message to the Australian government would certainly be: please demonstrate that you have done more homework than has been the case so far.

Its a valid warning, considering that a Commonwealth investment board is considering loaning Adani A$1 billion in federal money to assist the development of mining infrastructure.

The loan, expected to be announced any day now, will no doubt agitate further political controversy.......
