Fairfax Media staff will hold stop-work meetings after up to 30 journalists were made forcibly redundant.
Images from Media Watch ABC TV... Saved me some time at making up a full toon... Actually one could not do ANY better at deriding, lampooning, satirising, debasing, stupidising the Daily Telegraph than the DAILY TELEGRAPH ITSELF.
don't trust this rubbish in this lousy paper. YOU want better faster NBN? YES? simple. don't vote for malcolm...
Once more, the merde-och press attacks Labor for thinking ahead. You NEED a better NBN than what Malcolm is delivering with his mixed up bag of nineteenth century technology, wires pre-world war two, and a bit of optic fibre. Labor still wants you to have the best and it's AFFORDABLE. But Murdoch and his troops don't want you to have it because it's likely to be BETTER than his cable TV... So the exclusive is now about "budget blow", as if Malcolm had not blown the budget on trying to fix something that won't work well and will cost three times as much. Don't vote for Malcolm if you want a BETTER NBN.

A report that recommends putting a price on emissions from the electricity sector has been held back by the Climate Change Authority until after the election, prompting calls from Labor and the Greens that it be made public to inform debate.
The independent authority, whose board is now dominated by appointments made last October by Environment Minister Greg Hunt, was to have released its policy options paper for the power industry by the end of April.
Australia is a sick country, primarily because it has become such a selfish and self-centred country. A sense of entitlement pervades, indeed is encouraged and fostered within the ruling class and politicians. For sure it's all about us, that is, the white Anglo Christians who comprise the bulk of the Australian ruling class.
Mr Fraser said Treasurer Scott Morrison spoke to him personally at about 6pm on Thursday to instruct him to publish the full 10-year costings, following days of the government refusing to confirm the figure.
"You've finally been dragged kicking and screaming to fess up," Labor Senate leader Penny Wong said.
Mr Fraser said he had only been permitted to release the costing of two of the 11 prongs of the plan: reducing the company tax rate to 25 per cent, and increasing the threshold at which small businesses qualify for a lower tax rate.
