The AFR has a hit piece this morning calling Samantha Maiden “spiky and difficult” and arguing that there’s a group of powerful women journalists acting as activists in order to attack Scott Morrison.
What annoys me about this piece is that Aaron Patrick names all these women - Laura Tingle, Samantha Maide, Katharine Murphy, Louise Milligan - and sees some kind of angry female activist group. Why doesn’t he ask why prominent male political jounalists aren’t speaking up? Why isn’t Chris Uhlmann breaking stories about women’s treatment in parliament?
This article is trash.
