Once upon a time there was a blogger… nah, just kidding. I didn’t want to start another post with “Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while”. I’ve been sick, and last week I wasn’t very interested in the news. After all, how many times can you listen to Tony Abbott say the same thing? How is it even news if he says the same thing every day? We know that the Government is for the carbon tax (they really should have called it a pollution tax) and the Opposition is against the tax, so rather than just repeating this information each day, journalists should be investigating and reporting on the details of the tax. After all, only 17 per cent of people say they know a lot about the carbon pricing scheme, so clearly there’s a problem with information. And no, I’m not saying that journalists should be Government mouthpieces (they do that already with the Coalition), but that they should be informing their audience about what’s happening in their world and how it affects them. Particularly on issues that politicians reduce to slogans because they think we’re idiots.
Anyway, enough of the carbon tax. A big welcome and thank you to all the lovely new commenters and readers. You guys make this a nice place to hang out.
I’m opening the floor to you today. What suggestions do you have for News with Nipples? I’ve been blogging for a few years now and am open to changing things.
If you haven’t commented before and need a little encouragement, how about answering this question: What is your superpower?
Mine is being able to look at the time, think ‘ooh, it’s time to go to sleep’, and then be asleep in minutes. Drives ManFriend mad with envy.
Also, we’ve got Meat Club coming up and the theme is game. Any favourite recipes?
