Newscorp view our political press as insignificant, loss making little industry they were only in to satisfy the idiosyncracy of a horrible little old man. I agree. (I may have paraphrased). In that case can we have our democracy back and eject the political media culture which has undermined democracy from our democratic institutions and give them a level of influence which is more appropriate to the quality of their contribution to democracy? Perhaps assess them on their value as a check and balance?

Let us have democracy back? Maybe even before we hit the worst of this crisis? Maybe even in time to plan for our future?

No? Tenner bet none of our political press want that question asked, even if they have fought Murdoch’s place in their circle as the problem, and see themselves as benign..
