Early October 2014 the fear and loathing was palpable… my friend & colleague Marziya MohammedAli told me about the verbal and physical abuse that’s flowed from politics and some media politics coverage of “Terror Australis.”
Marziya is doing PostGrad work at ECU, and has been a Lectureer, Tutor, Researcher and Project manager at ECU.
Disclosure: I am a long time supporter of Wikileaks and the work of Julian Assange and all the others who risk everything to shed light on the ugly truth.
I was a mainstream journalist/radio host for 30 years, but no longer work in a newsroom ( apart from the odd fill-in to help out at 6PR & 96fm ) My work now is not objective, but I do strive for balance and welcome polite opposition.
Audio of Interview with Christine Assange as Mainstream Media focusses again on Julian Assange’s bid for the Senate.
I first interviewed Malcolm Fraser more than 30 years ago when I was a full time mainstream media journalist & broadcaster – this interview is not very MSM and not meant to be an objective analysis. It was a delight.
The former PM and member of the World Eminent Persons’ Group remains active as the Founding Chairman of CARE Australia.
He’s graciously agreed to talk again before the end of the year. meanwhile please follow him on twitter @MalcolmFraser12 ( and if you can handle a massive stream of alt news – use lists to manage high volume accts – follow me @perthtones )
The 20 minute audio is unedited to preserve it’s integrity, sections will be replayed on Perth radio 6PR Oct 13,14.
Just home in Western Australia after a First People’s meeting in the US, Trevor Walley joined me on radio 6PR in Perth to talk about Nyoongar and Whadjuk culture and Dreaming – you’ll enjot his positivity and vivid description of times when people and place were one :o)
