Tabloids declare Libs winner on health.
Well the tabloid's have declared John Howard the winner on bulk billing even though the extra money promised to save medicare may just end up in the pockets of GPs.
The Daily Telegraph started the praising with a story titled Dr John's amazing health elixa and backed it up with an editorial with more of the same.
Rupert's southern tabloid ran this story by Jason Frenkel and Gerard McManus, and didn't they get it off to a pitifully bias start with their lead paragraph declaring "AUSTRALIANS will save at least $5 on a basic doctor's visit under a $1.8 billion Medicare pledge by the Coalition."
Cmon guys investigate the spin don't just peddle it.
In fact peddle it the Hun did, with two journos, Steve Lewis and Sid Maher whacking their names at the top of the same story for their online edition.
Michael Harvey continued the campaign to endorse the Libs healthcare package with his now predictable mix of hard news and commentary in The Herald Sun. It really is staggering the Herald Sun seems unconcerned that Harvey's punditary and hard news appears on the same page.
For a better story on the Medicare promises go to the age.
