    Channel 7 broadcasts AFL, right? Sounds like a perfect match judging by Akermanis' comments.

    David Campbell was an incompetent and useless politician. Did he resign for not acting in the best interests of NSW? Nope, he resigned because he was outed as a poof.

    While I'm glad hes no longer in cabinet the way he was got rid of is as shameful as his performance as a minister.

    Interesting topic.

    I think the media get confused sometimes between public interest and what the public may find interesting.

    Ironically if he hadn't fought so hard to keep his job after his myriad professional failures it's unlikely he would have been a target for Seven's muckrakers.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    Yeah I saw this, and KRudd giving the Socceroos a farewell speech. Not sure which was more disturbing...he needs to get 'but you know something...' and all its variations out of his repertoire. It's really annoying. Especially considering the people he was talking to knew more than something about what he was attempting to talk about.

    AWTA. Admittedly I've read his articles more than I've heard him talk, but he always comes across as center right to me, albiet with monumental disdain for the far left.

    Heard the "government's" ads on "Health Reform" on the radio tonight for the first time. Disgustingly blatant misuse of public funds for a party political ad in an election year. Can't believe how much they sound EXACTLY like the old Workchoices ads that the ALP ranted and raved against! Did they actually go out and hire the same guys, including the bogan voiced "members of the public" serving up the Dorothy Dixers.

    If only the Opposition weren't such a shower of ****, because Ruddy's starting to grate.

    If the opposition opposed the net filter and had anyone but the Mad Monk leading I'd be well in their camp by now.
