Sympathy for the dodgy salesmen of Australian politics - Eureka Street

Sympathy for the dodgy salesmen of Australian politics - Eureka Street | the Gonzo Trap | Scoop.it

The Thomson and Slipper affairs may have brought parliament into disrepute, but this should not imply that parliament was well reputed before these scandalous stories emerged. Greens Leader Senator Christine Milne has called for an integrity commission or anti-corruption body, to restore public faith. But when it comes to the integrity of politicians, corruption alone cannot explain the extensive public disdain for our ruling class.
Such diverse elements as sexism, Tony Abbott, broken promises, climate change, Tony Abbott, faceless men, minority government, and even the allegedly intractable negativity of the Opposition under Tony Abbott, have been blamed for the decline of our political discourse.

Gonzo Journalism at Its Weirdest: Gonzo journalism defined by its fans. Should it be emulated? | the Gonzo Trap | Scoop.it

With the decline in popularity of newspapers I believe something should be done to shake up the way news is written. The problem with this is that some (if not a lot) journalists tend to play it safe with their writing for fear their editor will butcher their work. I’m not talking about the usual mundane 100 word articles about a fender-bender in the high street or a local Mayor caught with a mistress. I’m talking about feature articles that require a lengthy, investigative or research process.
