    Murdoch isn't pro LP m'kay? It's all in your head It's a 'blinkers' approach when it's Murdoch spewing forth front page after front page of offensive and pathetically skewed stories on politics, but if Fairfax dares show a leaning... omg they shouldn't be getting involved.... that's the media influencing the public!

    Yes they brainwashed us all. Those evil evil journalists. Australian people cannot think for themselves. They are all stupid. (sarcastic).

    Could it be that we both used the same search criteria? There was actually quite a lot of links - I'm not going to do your homework for you though.

    No. I have better things to do with my time that compare and contrast the public treatment of Abbott and Gillard. Perhaps you could put together something for us with all necessary links and references?

    It's amazing how things change when one is displaying a great deal of incompetence.

    I don't condone the shirts but let's not get carried away that she has as much sway or as many followers as Alan jones.
    OT but I love Clem Ford. She writes for Daily Life if you're interested

    It's a tad more complex than that. Can I suggest you put understanding media bias and its influence and impact on your list of subjects to study?

    This was written when she was still deputy to K Rudd.
    It's interesting that he says he likes her but still uses a gender based insult towards her and manages to sound like he's not sure of her at all.

    Can you link to the one where he expresses his horror at the sexism etc she was subjected to?

    In it, Alan Jones and Andrew Bolt are both in admiration of Gillard and both wanted her as PM.

    Were they misogynists then?
    Or did they grow into it during the three years that followed?

    Maybe you can provide me the worst of the worst sexist comment that she received. I will then find what Bolt thought.

    I'm sorry if I'm being unclear, I asked if Bolt ever expressed his horror at the treatment gillard received- the sexism etc- as the prime minister. You said yes but linked to a blog from when she was deputy to Rudd and now this one- which appears to be exactly the same?. Did he or did he not express outrage at the threats, sexism and vitriol directed at PM Gillard as he has since done in defence of Tony Abbott?
