TNE 102 Two Firings, Two Stadiums and a Wedding
The US news media was shaken up by the firing of Tucker Carlson from Fox News and Don Lemon from CNN. Back in Australia PM Albo had a tone-deaf Saturday by funding two stadiums in then flying to Kyle Sandilands wedding. I look at all the fallouts on Tim’s News Explosion.
Rumour has it that Victorian Premier Dan Andrews will retire mid-year. But Dan is not done building his legacy with legislation before parliament to make the North Richmond drug injecting room permanent. Consultation begins on a proposed second drug injection in the CBD near Flinders Street Station. The age of criminal responsibility will be lifted to 12 by the end of 2024 and to 14 by the end of 2027.
There was a ratepayers’ protest outside the latest Monash Council meeting over a planned drag queen storytime at Oakleigh Library on May 19 for IDAHOBIT Day. The Municipal Association of Victoria says that council meetings that are attended by activists should be moved online. The indoctrination appears to be working with a recent survey finding that one-third of Australia’s youth identifying as LGBT.
On Saturday Anthony Albanese first travelled to Hobart to announce $240 million in federal funding for a new AFL stadium at Macquarie Point, then to Launceston with $65 million for an upgrade to York Park as part of an AFL extortion operation so there will be a team based in Tasmania. Albo then flew back to Sydney to attend Kyle Sandilands and Tegan Kynaston $1 million wedding. Kyle’s groomsmen were nightclub identity John Ibrahim and convicted drug trafficker Simon Main.
Labor Governments have attacked the Greens for opposing more private housing development. The Greens want a national rent freeze and seem to only support government-owned and built housing. More housing needs to be built as 650,000 migrants are coming over the next two years. Home Affairs Minister Claire O’Neill unveiled a migration review that recommends allowing more migrant care workers to fill the current demands for labour.
NSW One Nation Mark Latham again defended his tweet reply to Independent Sydney MP Alex Greenwich calling him disgusting on Chris Smith’s TNT radio show. Latham said that to straight men the thought of two men having anal sex is puke worthy. A peer-reviewed scientific study in 2017 found straight men’s physiological stress response to seeing two men kissing is the same as seeing maggots. Greenwich is now suing Latham for defamation, reported him to police and made a vilification complaint.
Australia’s eSaftey Commissioner Julie Inman Grant issued a take down notice to Twitter over TERF news website Reduxx for misgendering transwoman and former SJW YouTuber now soccer player Riley Dennis. Dylan Mulvany feels that media reports saying he in response to the Bud Light backlash should be illegal.
US President Biden officially announced his 2024 re-election campaign with the slogan ‘let’s finish the job’. Because Biden is already 80 years old the Democrats have been promoting two Gen Z shills influencers Harry Sisson and Chris Mowrey. Disney is suing Florida Governor and likely Presidental candidate Ron DeSantis over him removing their special tax and planning status in the state. Already announced Presidential candidate and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley urged Disney to move their operations to her state. In Israel DeSantis signed an anti-free speech law HB 269 that makes it a felony with up to five years in jail for passing out “offensive” flyers or pamphlets.
A week after Tucker Carlson’s firing from Fox News ratings have helved in the network’s 8pm slot. The inside word is it was the decision of the Murdochs. Fox Corporation revenue on Tucker’s show had been declining from 2019 onwards because of advertiser boycotts after he said uncontrolled mass migration made America “poorer, dirtier and more divided”. Low-level Tucker producer Abby Grossberg is suing Fox claiming his office contained misogyny and anti-Semitism even though she never met Tucker. Rival conservative news channel Newsmax’s ratings have increased with many MAGA American First patriots making the switch. Don Lemon’s firing from CNN appears to have occurred because the network had just had enough of his identity politics black victimhood rants.
Fresh violence has broken out between military factions in Sudan which is supposed to be in a transition to democracy. The WHO warned of a “high risk of biological hazard” after rebels seized a biolab in Sudan’s capital Khartoum.
