Journalism is a lost art

May 20, 2022

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor

Journalism was once an art, respected and civilised. These smart alec ‘gotcha’ questions have no place in political interviews. If journalists can't ask constructive questions, they shouldn't ask any at all.

Shouting over the top of each other to get their questions across, sounded like an all-in brawl. Unacceptable in my view. Not all journalists are like this, they have respect for themselves and their profession.

While they are about it, why don't they ask Morrison by what means did he win the preselection ballot to enter Parliament for the first time when it was another candidate who won it hands down? Check it out.

He says he's not a bully! Forcing people to shake his hand is not only arrogant, it's also bullying. He says that character is everything in being a leader. Morrison showed his true character in the 3rd debate with his outburst of calling Anthony Albanese a ‘loose unit’ and so on. Anthony Albanese showed complete composure and didn't respond to such obnoxious behaviour. 

True signs of good leadership with a safe pair of hands, and steady as he goes.
