Media Musings Blog Archive The Climate Conversation

Asics paris by Joanna Robin

In a column which appeared on The Conversation’swebsite yesterday Monash University’s David Holme’s urged that media outlets must not surrender to « the media industrial political complex of climate denial,

He penned the column Politicised media: false balance and the pseudo climate debate following the recent incorrect reportage of leaked statistics from the IPCC.

Holmes laments the amount of mainstream media coverage given to climate sceptics, such as Professor Bob Carter a asics kayano homme man who believes global warming stopped 16 years ago, and who recently lost his job at James Cook University in Townsville in the interested of ‘balanced’ reporting.

Everyone’s favourite climate denier Andrew Bolt was quick to address Holmes’ concerns on his personal blog. He argued Holmes « illiberal » offering had failed to grasp the concept of balance, labeling the lecturer and his band of tree hugging lefties an « embarrassment, and a menace to free speech,

Bolt also posted the following screenshot taken from The Conversation (« a taxpayer funded outlet that pumps out endless global warming propaganda with all the contempt for debate that Holmes could wish for ») homepage yesterday.

Just look at all that climate coverage and not a word from Professor Carter! Damning evidence, indeed.

On the question of free speech Holmes left this comment on his piece:

« I am not suggesting restricting the freedom of the press. There are two kinds of rights relevant here, the right of the press to be free from political interference, but also the rights of asics paris audiences to be informed by news and current affairs that is in their interest. Mainstream media is particularly important here because, while it does not tell us what to think, it does set the terms of what to think about,

« The divide isn’t between those who accept the science and those who don’t. Science does not speak with one voice on this matter, although the consensus now is that sceptical positions I’ve argued have indeed proved correct on the warming pause, cyclones, Antarctic ice spread and more. It seems to me it’s actually been the warmists who have not « accepted the science » in these matters,

Perhaps science does not speak with one voice on issue of climate change, but if NASA is to be believed there is certainly a consensus on the matter.

Media Musings Blog Archive The end of race discrimination for Australia

Asics paris australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world, which also makes race diversity a major issue. Research shows that 87 percent of Australians support race diversity, but 10 percent of Australians which is equivalent to approximately 1.5 million of the adult population, still disagree with the idea of multiculturalism.

While there is a high percentage of Australians supporting multiculturalism, 79.3 percent of them do not agree to different races to marry one another. This poses the question of whether Australia is really improving their exception of race diversity.

Professor Kevin Dunn, who led a 12 year survey on racism in Australia explained that even though 87 percent shows positivity on race diversity, there are still a high number of Australians who aren comfortable with differences in culture.

Multiculturalism does have a future in Australia, but it has a long way to go said Prof Dunn. Verbal and physical abuses against non Australians and indigenous Australians are still ever growing.

Race diversity in the 21st century has surely improved from how it was before. Is it though, that most Australians including Indigenous Australians, interact more actively now than before? Are young Australians today more educated and open minded?

What happened to top Australian footballer Adam Goodes on last week Friday game, shows that there are still a great number of young Australians out there whom still discriminate against other races. The 13 year old girl who called Goodes an ape behind his back really sparked the whole race discrimination in Australia once again.

After the young girl apologized, Goodes spoke to the media press during an AFL conference on May 25, saying that he did not think the whole incident was entirely the girl fault. He told the asics kayano homme press that he was more concerned about the environment she was being brought up from considering her judgement on race at such a young age.

The whole issue with Goodes could have ended with the girl apology, until the famous Collingwood president Eddie McGuire decided to make a joke on Tripple R. McGuire was hosting a radio show with Luke Darcy last Wednesday when he made the « King Kong » joke about Goodes. It took McGuire a few minutes before he realized that he made a racist joke. After McGuire apologized on the radio show, Goodes Tweeted the next day saying, and this is what I woke up to see,

asics kayano homme Media Musings Blog Archive Sydney costs a Buddy fortune

Media Musings Blog Archive Sydney costs a Buddy fortune

Asics shop online on Tuesday asics kayano homme the Sydney Swans announced they had secured the playing rights of Coleman medallist Lance Franklin.

Franklin signed a nine year, $10 million contract with the Swans, a move that has angered much of the footy world.

The Swans were able to offer Franklin such a asics shop online huge sum because they have a cost of living allowance, not available to clubs outside of Sydney. The allowance is designed to compensate players for their new life in the expensive Harbour City.

The main points of contention coming from the football community about the the Sydney teams cost of living asics kayano homme allowance, is that rather than distributing the $900,000 among the entire playing team, Sydney uses the extra money to lure marquee players such as Franklin and in 2012, Kurt Tippet.

The ability for Sydney to be able to attract the services of high profile players and therefore increase the overall asics shop online quality of its playing list will create a disparity between it and clubs that are struggling financially such as Melbourne, Western Bulldogs and North Melbourne.

Whether a cost of living allowance is even necessary must be addressed by the AFL after a NATSEM Household Budget Report released by the University of Canberra revealed that there is less than $3,000 difference between Sydney and Melbourne in the cost of living annually.

Media coverage of the deal has been almost universal. Most media outlets have focused not only the huge sum of money Franklin is getting paid but also make a point of highlighting Sydney entitlement to a cost of living allowance.

The similar coverage of the issue the stories were printed identically in Sydney papers could be explained by the fact the outlets that do most of the AFL reporting are Fairfax and News Limited. It is simply easier to publish the same asics shop online stories across the nation than to source different stories for each paper.

Website The Roar printed an article about how a cost of living allowance is fair if the extra money in the salary cap is distributed evenly among players.

The AFL news site which usually offers balanced reporting published this propaganda piece quoting former Swans player Mitch Morton insisting that players in Sydney needed to earn 20 per cent more than other players.

While many would agree new clubs such as Greater Western Sydney and Gold Coast Suns need a lot of support to build their clubs and fanbase, an established and successful team like the Swans don need any further assistance. The extra $900,000 the club receives is helping to propel it light years ahead of struggling teams.

Agree with you overall point Shapow. The cost of living allowance is redundant in the contemporary AFL landscape. I think the characterisation of the Mitch Morton article as a propaganda piece is a bit harsh. It gave the Sydney party line a voice, but I don reckon the reporting itself was poor in the context of the conversation. But it does raise a salient point regarding the AFL media unit. Sporting bodies funding journalism is always going raise questions about conflicts of interest. Sport journos cheer leading rather than scrutinising and challenging presents the biggest challenge to fair and balanced sport journalism. Feel like it going to get worse before it gets better.
