Turnbull’s NBN media war blows back
blog Those who’ve been following the National Broadband Network debate over the past several months will have taken note of the ongoing attacks Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has made on sites such as the ABC, ZDNet and even Delimiter. Turnbull, it has been apparent, feels strongly that we’ve been doing a bad job in our articles and are heavily pro-NBN and not objective enough about the Coalition’s rival NBN policy. This morning, long-time telco commentator David Braue skewers Turnbull for this ongoing war on the media, in the erudite fashion which Braue readers have become accustomed to. Some choice paragraphs (but you really need to read the full piece):
“Turnbull has proven himself to be that particular type of politician who, when he has run out of defensible facts, shifts strategy and begins to target not the policy, but the people he sees as its proponents. Rather than dealing in facts and genuine debate, Turnbull is instead opting to deal in vagaries, insinuations, and character assassinations. He attacks critics who are absent, withholds crucial facts that would properly inform the debate, and is now all but refusing to engage with those who are anything but bloodthirsty enemies of Labor and its NBN.”
I’m not as harsh a critic of Turnbull and the Coalition’s rival NBN policy as Braue or Nick Ross at the ABC has been, and recently I’ve even controversially come out as saying the Earl of Wentworth has a viable policy, if not one that is anywhere near as good as Labor’s. But there’s no doubt where most of the readers’ sympathies lie on this one, as the acidic comment thread following my positive (but heavily qualified) Turnbull sentiments earlier this week demonstrated. As always, Braue nails his target to the wall in a way that reflects the sentiment of the masses. This is a must-read.
