It is fascinating to watch the leftwing media who supported Malcolm Turnbull body and soul, now turning into attack dogs on anything concerning the Liberal Party. It seems that in some sections of the media, Turnbull could do no wrong and his successors will be able to do no right.

Scott Morrison and his disciples seem to be unable or unwilling to explain why Malcolm Turnbull is now out of a job, The answer is obvious: Turnbull was foisted on us courtesy of a backroom coup and he was always too big for his boots.

If we are going to introduce quotas for female politicians, perhaps it is also time for the ABC to introduce quotas for its commentators. Fifty per cent to be left-leaning (instead of 100 per cent) and 50 per cent to be right-leaning. Only then will the ABC come close to its charter.
