The perils of the 24 hour news cycle. You can't afford to wait and thus end up endlessly speculating in advance of the facts in order to try and keep your audience entertained.

Here in the 21st Century we have quantum refugees, capable of simultaneously taking Aussie jobs whilst being unemployed.
Illiterate and innumerate refugees will take Australian jobs or languish on the dole and use free health services provided by Medicare, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has warned.

Nothing like the numerate, literate, upper-class folks who came out from England to settle in Australia on their convict ships.

The Onion cuts through the noise.
 
Donald Trump’s political positions, personal history, and potential governing style have been the subject of much debate throughout the 2016 election. The Onion separates myth from fact in this breakdown of Trump’s campaign:

Finally reversing years of dangerous pseudo-science.
A new set of guidelines from an international summit of health professionals aims to halve the rate of peanut allergies in Australian children. How will they do it? The Health Report finds out.

Great piece by Annabel Crabb on Malcolm Turnbull:
"One feels for the prime ministerial police detail. After six years of Rudd and Gillard, who lived obediently in the Lodge, fighting viciously among themselves but otherwise observing a decently sedentary lifestyle, suddenly there's Tony Abbott who wants to live in a barracks and cycle 80 kilometres before dawn, then Malcolm Turnbull who favours his own waterfront home, small flimsy craft and public transport. His kayaking expeditions, apparently, are monitored closely by the water police, who chunter along in his wake as the twenty-ninth Prime Minister of Australia, happy as a clam, paddles across the harbour listening to Slate's Political Gabfest."
Malcolm Turnbull came to the prime ministership determined to change the nature of politics itself, writes Annabel Crabb.

So good was Tony Abbott, in fact, as Opposition leader, that he never entirely left the job.

Only too.

Dear Minister Dutton,
I think it would send a really strong message about your commitment to your country's security if you set yourself on fire. Australia's whinging left would be shamed by your actions, and you would be an inspiration to all who support the struggle against people smuggling.

Yours sincerely......

(Well apparently this stuff works, so I thought I'd give it a go.)
