Just saw a new global scientific study, that shows alarming and potentially catastrophic consequences , hardly given a mention in the Murdoch papers.Front page has 4 articles on Labor,one on the Greens and it's mostly a fear campaign in border security.The Daily Mail was recentlty taken off the reliable news source list by wikipedia. Is it time for the rest of the science denying papers to be added to the list? Four out if five climate change articles in The Australian recomnend no reduction in carbon emmissions.The Herald Sun is similar.Should we cop this from our newspapers and what can be done about it?

Interesting topic in general because people are always complaining about media biases. Left wing this, right wing that, such and such is a mouthpiece for this party or that party.

Not nearly enough is said about the dreadful quality of journalism we have to endure these days. Give me a slanted piece that is well researched and well written over the clickbait nonsense that passes for news any day.

The HUN is a tabloid, not a proper newspaper. The Australian and WSJ are perfectly fine as news sources so long as people acknowledge they often have an angle. Ideally, people would read multiple papers from different sources and different angles to form their own opinions with points from each side, but these days it seems people don't like encountering things they disagree with.

It's not a different angle ,it's deliberate misleading stories.The Australian has few truthful climate change article, in fact 80% of their climate chang articles say there is no need for carbon reductions. That's called fake news not different angle.

Can I ask where you're getting your information that 80% of The Australian's climate change stories are fake news?

Of course they're unreliable.

They also spawned PC group think.
