I am an Aussie and reading half the threads here I am thinking “WTFF is wrong with your country?!?”
I know social media is more used by the left, and the noisy wheel gets the oil yada yada yada, ie news reports now a days are made up of people’s opinions on social media. Like I care about these nobodies, why you telling me what someone posted on Twitter, that you hand picked to sway opinion.
I am sure it is not like the impression I get (admittedly most of my news exposure is limited to here and Reddit) as I don’t use social media.
But some of the stories like people getting canceled for crazy reason, yet others can riot and attack people with what seems to be very little accountability. Just say the guy said the magic word and then it’s like he wasn’t beaten enough.
How some kid smiling at the native guy was wall to wall coverage for what seemed like ages, then some other stories that I think are shocking gets minimal coverage.
Bottom line, my opinion is your news media is beyond messed up. Everything that makes its way here is so biased and heavily leaning one way or the other. I don’t care much about your politics and does not bother me, I assume it is not as bad as what I think, but it would drive me up the wall if that was my country.
I had to stop using reddit news/world news lately...waste of time. Just hope Australia does not head down that way.
