THE CAIRNS POST - "IF WE HAD TO CHECK EVERY FACT, WE'D NEVER GET A PAPER OUT"

The quote above was actually said by a former Cairns Post editor to John "Cueball" MacKenzie several years ago.  This after a reader complaint about a front page story riddled with errors and falsities.

With many now relying for their local news from the Cairns Post "online", it's great that they've provided this ticker there so that we can all be prepared for the upcoming election.



Or maybe not.

You can't make this shit up.

The Compost has hit a new low when it comes to stupidity and childishness. I get more excited about my yearly prostate check than I do about stupid horseshit elections such as this.

The Compost says it all - "if they had to check facts". Correct, they should, but they don't. Newspapers are a business to make money for oligarchs. Truth is irrelevant. Facts are irrelevant. It's all about the $$$$.
But this is nothing new, that's why we read HBW and not the Murdoch inspired shite.

And don't hold your breath waiting for an apology to be printed. Does poor old Rupert really know how incompetent and deceitful this rag is?

They have gone and dug up an extreme climate change denier, when do they learn. Last year they dug up a diver who denied coral bleaching would happen this year yet they still persist in seeking out those unqualified in the field. Now we have a physicist, may as well ask a computer scientist. So the region will suffer from poor levels of debate once again. Though to their credit they did not go with the silly misleading over hyped commitment to spending from the Federal government as Advance Cairns did. So hope yet.

The Compost is operated by Presstitute's who are willing to sell themselves to the highest bidder. Mainstream media is arrogant, corrupt, biased and untrue. The only time I pick up a Cairns Post newspaper is when I need to start a BBQ or wipe my ass.

I saw an article today with the "leaders" pushing a petition to reduce electricity prices. The responses were obviously not what they expected. The people responding more informed than both the "leaders" and the " journalists" and when I went to add my 5 cents the article is gone. Not the ALP attack they had hoped for. I hope it is not censorship but certainly appears to be.

Seems like they are trying to control the news re the reef rather than report it. Wonder if there is any pressure to do that?
