How Australia’s proper is utilizing freedom of speech as a diversion
Lip service to the ‘freedom of speech’ campaign has morphed right into a declaration of loyalty (or of submission) to the best.
“Look! Over there! Freedom of speech underneath assault!”
It’s half distraction, half bullying and half trolling. And apparently it is a good ploy, as loads of conventional media have fallen for it. The 9 mastheads front-paged the issues all week, maybe over-excited about discovering unlikely allies of their continued conflict in opposition to the large tech platforms.
