Slipper And Ashby: The Media Then And Now

Gillard government ministers continued their attack on the opposition today over its involvement in the Slipper-Ashby sexual harassment case.

Ministers repeatedly called on the Liberal National Party in Queensland to disendorse Mal Brough in Slipper’s electorate of Fisher.

The Parliamentary Secretary for Defence, Mike Kelly, described the affair as an “Australian Watergate”.

On social media, the Australian media was repeatedly attacked for its coverage of yesterday’s decision by the Federal Court to dismiss the case as an abuse of process and a conspiracy to damage Slipper politically.
