Today I start what I hope to be a new series, that of adding links to news, editorials and blogs that I find interesting and/or thought provoking.
Today’s recommended reading comes from Melbourne’s Saturday’s Age published on 2nd of March. It is an editorial defending the right of refugee’s to seek asylum in Australia without the threat of indefinite detention.
I just wish Fairfax, and The Age more specifically, would follow it’s own advice when it comes to reporting upon the he said/she said politics of of the asylum debate. When it is dogwhistling, racist or a race to the bottom, call it so.
