I live in Australia.
This necessitates watching Australian TV now and again (I can’t play Starcraft II all day long after all).
Australian TV is infuriating. Knowing many intelligent and informative Australians I wonder why they put up with ‘news’ programmes that consist of John Brumby pointing at empty lots of peri-urban land and mumbling in a pathetic attempt to empathise with ‘battlers’ concerns followed by 20 minute segments on why Ben Cousins didn’t fuck up today.
As for the print media: Herald Sun, good on you, you at least don’t pretend you’re anything but crap. The Age, you are a disgrace. If you’re articles aren’t bought in they consist of regurgitated lines provided by Government ‘spokesmen’ punctuated with sport exposes.
Thank fuck for the internet; and thank fuck for my blog.
