On news.com this morning – top story:
PM’s poll gamble rocked by scandal
Julia Gillard’s election campaign experiment has run off the rails on day one with the dramatic arrest of the former Labor MP Craig Thomson yesterday
Oh, how convenient. It rocks the PM.
Oh, how convenient.
I get to the article:
Julia Gillard’s high-stakes election strategy has been rocked by ex-Labor MP Craig Thomson’s arrest on 149 fraud charges, including allegedly using union funds to pay for prostitutes.
Oh, how convenient. The PM’s election call was a failure.
And in the article we read:
. . . Tony Abbott claimed the Thomson scandal reflected badly on Ms Gillard’s political judgement. “It’s always been about the judgement of the Prime Minister,” Mr Abbott said, during a major speech to the National Press Club.
Next to the article was a section called Related Coverage and linked to the “You can trust me, says Abbott” article.
Oh, how convenient. Julia Gillard can’t be trusted but Tony Abbott can.
But it’s beyond me how trusting Abbott is related coverage to the Thomson saga.
I guess it’s just convenient for news.com to say so.
Pathetic, isn’t it? Biased, isn’t it?
