International media covers what the Australian press won’t
There are very few journalists prepared to ask any hard questions when it comes to Islam.
Apart from Paul Sheehan at the Sydney Morning Herald and Des Houghton at The Courier Mail, most Australian journalists run the other way when it comes to reporting the issues raised on this blog. I think they’re scared and don’t have the logic or intestinal fortitude for a debate. But I would be more than happy to be proven wrong.
But some of them do bite. Like Mike Carlton. He won’t report, but he will resort to insult. It’s all he’s got.
@BernardGaynor You are even more stupid than I thought.
