While the internet has seriously damaged democracy, it has also given rise to a series of sub-communities, each believing that their twist on the same thought is equally valid.
While generational labels are nothing new, the term “snowflake millennial” is one of the most acidic. It might roll off the tongue, but it is anything but informed.
According to its state-run media, China has managed to land a probe on the dark side of the Moon. The internet was quick to pile on.
Ian “Hendo” Henderson was the voice of the ABC’s news coverage for a quarter century. The man saw the fall of the Berlin Wall and the media transform. He may no longer read the news, but his inexorable personality remains indelibly planted in the zeitgeist.
Yesterday, the police eviscerated the media for putting forward a suspect in the Toyah Cordingley case. In response, the media are questioning the police for dragging their feet. Who is in the right?
In the modern age, false media is all too often promoted as a means to advance the already advanced. I suggest we redirect our technology to those who need it: those outside the official narrative.
We can easily point at Donald Trump for stoking the fires, but it is the media that is equally to blame for such obvious political division.
This week’s drama with the ABC illuminates the power that journalists still hold, and how they will continue to hold power over the politicians who look to seek influence over them.

Alex Jones being kicked off the air was just the most notable neck chopped in a towering wave of sanctioned censorship.
The full details of the allegations against Emma Husar should be noticed. Not for her actions, but rather how much of the investigation was leaked.
The defence of Julian Assange has largely been left to the individual. Noticeably, no media outlets have stood beside him. Their silence speaks volumes.
Once the NBN is finished, what should be done with our white elephant should be discussed. In fact, New Zealand might have already answered for us.
Lauren Southern is a figure of questionable views that feeds off our attention. For a person we’re supposed to be ignoring, we’ve afforded her a lot of airtime.
In this country, when instances of national security arise, history shows that our media is unable to investigate it. Witness K and East Timor is merely the latest edition.
Just in time for the Helinski summit, a wave of anti-Russian sentiment has made it to the front pages. It’s as obvious as it is lazy.
Tommy Robinson, an avatar for the centre-right sits in jail. The furore surrounding his incarceration has a significant political tone. This is dangerous.
It’s morning. Again. Overnight, Donald Trump almost did a group he hates a favour, India joined the space race and fans of Harry Potter gave themselves over to the dark mark.
Michaelia Cash might be the latest example of it, but the general idea our ministers possess is that failure does not equate to removal from office.
