We all remember Gavin Kings comments from 2008.

Now we have the Female Mayor of Colonge sprouting the same crap in Germany. It could have come staight from Kings Colummn. Women should keep at arms length from strangers. You couldn't make this shit up.

A pertinent comment. Hillbilly Watch was the only media outlet here in Cairns to cover the Chinese Government's crackdown on Chinese casinos, posting links to various financial sites for us to read for ourselves. At the same time "The Cairns Post" was engaged in an outright, over the top publicity campaign for Fung and his AQUIS resort which raised the expectations of its readers who were led to believe AQUIS was a fait accomplait. Had they bothered to do the research which HBW did, the "Cairns Post" may have been more cautious.

Staff cuts and a shift of power to Townsville have crippled the Compost — not that I'm making excuses for our local rag … it's been a poor excuse of a regional paper for more than 25 years; since it went from broadsheet to tabloid and the last of its old school editors, Alan Hudson, retired. What passes for journalism these days is an absolute joke with poor standards of literacy or comprehension of current affairs. There's virtually no investigative reporters left, journos have to proofread and edit their own copy, editors are selected on their commercial acumen and there's a singular lack of experience across the board. TV newsrooms, in particular (invariably run by men) tend to favour kewpie doll reporters, who look good in front of the camera but who tend to know nuttin' about nuttin'.

Tony Hillier, I only watch the local news so I can have a perve on some of the female reporters. Why? Because there is nothing worth watching on the local news, it is complete shite!! Stories about burnt letter boxes, the lack of cardboard boxes or a stolen golf bag. Big fucking deal. Stories about a local family having their wheelie bin stolen, the need for a stop sign on a road that none of us have even heard of, or some Councillor celebrating 20 years of draining the public purse! Whoopy doooo. Absolute bollocks. Mainstream is shit. Go to HBW for the real news stories. 10/10

That's a pretty reasonable round up on The Cairns Post today, Tony Hillier. Murdoch is practising his beliefs in neo-liberalism by attempting to increase his profits by constantly reducing staff and operating costs and to hell with the quality of journalism. What the money hungry old oligarch hasn't taken into account is that more and more people in the Western world now regard his corporatized media machine with contempt. NEWS LTD isn't a media outlet anymore, it is a political propaganda machine, its objective to advance the cause of neo-liberalism and to irrevocably change the West forever.

The readership of the Cairns Post is mainly an older conservative demographic, the same group who listen to windbag McKenzie. Another few years, as they drop off the edge, both mediums will disappear from view. consigned to the garbage heap of history. Good riddance.
