  • Dear Richard Glover, stop being anti-social | James Purser
    whatever Conversations that would normally happen the next day at work are now happening in real time while the thing is occuring This helps to promote MSM and provides another way to unite its viewers behind it What will threaten Main Stream Media as we know it is the inability to recognise change when its happening Much like the Labor party in NSW have been circling the wagons against the coming changes to their industries rather than trying to move with them and much like the NSW Labor party they really do risk being reduced to a rump while the new players the more nimble players step up and fill the void Just like King Ludd they ll eventually be pushed aside and left behind Change is occuring in the media market there isn t any doubt about it New technologies have already changed the way people are consuming their news and media needs Ask your employer the ABC where they see the direction of the media environment heading They have invested the time and resources needed to ensure that they can make the transition in time with the consumers iView podcasting and sites like the Drum mean that as the tech advances and the people adapt the ABC is able to keep up You say that Thank God It s Friday recently celebrated its 5000th podcast subscriber and you compare that to the 130 000 radio listeners you get every week I d like to put it to you another way Those 5000 subscribers of which I am one by way represent 5000 people who wouldn t otherwise be listening to your programme instead of 130 000 listeners you have 135 000 listeners and by the sounds of it the number is growing Your show is Sydney based however

  • This mornings Insiders and Bolts performance | James Purser
    and inserted his own It seems that monsuier Bolt may have ambitions for a leadership position in the new order The thing is if he wants to be a thought leader for the Tea Party keeping in mind that he s competing with such luminaries as Angry Anderson then more luck to him He s got plenty of opportunities to spout his own brand of wisdom he has a radio gig and a blog with the biggest newspaper in Victoria Insiders is meant to be more than a personal soap box for a budding demagogue it s meant to be an exploration of the nations politics by people who know what they are talking about Gah head is pounding but seriously from now on if Bolt is on Insiders I will not be watching The show just loses all value Oh and that applies to Piers Akerman as well It is possible to have a right wing commentator on the show who can debate policy Gerard Henderson is one such person I may never agree with what he says but at least he knows how to argue rationally and cogently An Update Crikey com au is carrying a media brief stating that Andrew Bolt has quit the show to pursue other projects Of course this will be painted as interweb lefties closing down debate However I would love to see more time given to conservative right wing commentators who can string a cogent argument together without trying to bully and bluster Another Update Well the Australian has a bit more on the Bolt making a move story Turns out that he hasn t quit just yet but is plumming for a big role with Ten possibly his own show perhaps he ll resurrect blackboard from mr squiggel so he can

  • The Excitement is over, now what? | James Purser
    and Shellharbour would be run by organisations that are truly answerable to the local communities So now we wait with bated breath to see if Barry and the Coalition will fulfil their promise Infrastructure and Development The Wollongong and Shellharbour Local Government Areas are growth areas People continue to flow into the newly created estates from Sydney and more and more land is being opened up However there hasn t been the same growth in infrastructure to carry the increased load Case in point The West Dapto development population roughly 10000 is fed by two roads The main one Bong Bong road feeds directly into the centre of Dapto crossing over the South Coast rail line a single track line before dumping thousands of vehicles into direct competition with the normal in town peak hour traffic The second road is called Darkes Road and is barely more than a paved rural road While there are finally works in progress to improve the traffic flow the simple fact is that the project growth of the West Dapto region alone is going to overwhelm the road and public transport infrastructure that exists today and has been planned for So how is the Coalition going to fix situations like this In fact will the Coalition have a focus on issues like this outside of Sydney Ethics Classes Last year the former Labor government announced that they were finally going to implement the ethics classes essentially a secular alternative to Religious Education that many parents have been calling for for years At first the Coalition declared that they were going to oppose the classes playing to the more conservative fanctions both within the parties and within the wider society However when the Labor party the Greens and independents combined to force the legislation through
