"Probyn, like his predecessor, Chris Uhlmann, has got into the nasty habit of parroting fossil fuel myths as if they are fact. They’ve become obsessed with concepts such as “synchronous” generation and “baseload”, using them to slap down wind and solar without really understanding why or how.

This is a problem for ABC viewers because they are not getting a clear and unbiased picture of energy issues. A complex subject is being poorly served . Labor is accused by Probyn of being a “slave” to wind and solar ideology, while Uhlmann thinks more wind and solar will lead to a national blackout.

Last night, Probyn tried to wrap up the gas talks, led by prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, and the push into battery storage into one big omnibus piece. But then he got diverted by his own prejudice, or misconceptions."

Emotive words, chosen to sway opinion. Not good +ABC Australia not good at all. "Where’s the ABC Fact Check department when you need it? Ah, that’s right, it’s closed. And that’s a pity, because it would be kept mighty busy by some of the recent editorialising by Andrew Probyn, the 7.30 Report’s new political editor."

Haven't read it - looks interesting.
The CJR study, by scholars at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, at Harvard Law School, and the MIT Center for Civic Media, examined more than 1.25 million articles between April 1, 2015, and Election Day. What they found was that Hillary Clinton supporters shared stories from across a relatively broad political spectrum, including center-right sources such as The Wall Street Journal, mainstream news organizations like the Times and the Post, and partisan liberal sites like The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast.

By contrast, Donald Trump supporters clustered around Breitbart — headed until recently by Stephen Bannon, the hard-right [Nazi] now ensconced in the White House — and a few like-minded websites such as The Daily Caller, Alex Jones' Infowars, and The Gateway Pundit. Even Fox News was dropped from the favored circle back when it was attacking Trump during the primaries, and only re-entered the fold once it had made its peace with the future president.

"When Frydenberg was asked whether the announcement he was there to trumpet in the garage “was designed to embarrass the state government”, we’d reached the point when truth would out.

“To be honest, I didn’t even know Jay was going to be here.”

Suddenly the strained suburban tableau made sense. An ambush! In genteel Adelaide of all places.

Except the ambush theory became a bit frayed when it became known later that AGL had known for a week the premier would be present at the festivities on Thursday.

A bit strange that the company would have neglected to tell Frydenberg his chief combatant was also popping by.

And it turns out AGL did tell Frydenberg Weatherill would be present. On Wednesday night. So the minister was warned. Which made the “I’m the victim here guys” protestation from Frydenberg somewhat thin."

NOW - who would have said this about whom and why? " the public would think that is pretty unbecoming and childish and pretty unacceptable for a senior political figure ... to behave "

Sounds vaguely similar to what some of our pollies do. No doubt the idea will go down like a lead balloon.

Great for dry climate gardening - and in all the places we have problematic rainfall. (Like my back yard!)

Reminds me of the WWII poster: "Loose lips sink ships".

"Willimon charged that Trump’s Twitter presence poses a “national security threat,” adding that it “emboldens our enemies to take advantage of his flagrant shortcomings.”

Willimon noted that Twitter is “amazing” and that it “connects the world.” But he said, “That comes with its own responsibility: to do your part in protecting that world.”
