'COVID-19 media slogans: 'We're all in this together' vs 'We are one' : Comments

By Charles Essery, published 14/4/2020

The stark contrast in how 'their ABC' and SkyNews (UK and Australia) are reporting this pandemic is astounding and somewhat reminiscent of their handling of the recent bushfires.

We are not all in it together. The Chinese virus crisis has really brought out the hypocrisy and selfishness of 80% of Australians. We can never think of ourselves in the light of past myths again. All the pain is being borne by those least able to handle it.

i dont think sky news in the UK and Australia can be compared.

The UK channel is much, much better, probably representative of its centre-right commentators being far wiser and less inclined to rant.

Probably explains why British conservatives are more inclined to support climate change action.

again, i apologise to the Sky Australia day time crew which are much better.

Oh please and for heaven's sake! First, stop with critiquing the ABC because you hate their very non-partisan and unbiased accurate reporting!

Second, the is no versus here! We are all in this together and we are one and from all the lands on earth, we come!

And in either context, united and speaking with one voice as we ( THAT'S US, ALLOF US) fight our combined common enemy!

Grow up and stop with the patently partisan shite stirring! It doesn't kill a single virus, genius! AND HELPS NOTHING AND NOBODY! The divide and rule, business as usual, from the extreme right serves nobody and nothing!

Stop it or you'll go blind!

Reported this morning: the 49 case outbreak of the Chinese virus in Tasmania has been traced back to an "illegal" dinner of MEDICAL WORKERS.

Oh Alan B, I read it and didn't go blind... Perhaps your the one with the blinkered, convenient truth on the world!. Well written Dr Essery, it about time we stopped pussy footing around with the ABC, and as for Ms Butrosee .(Emperor Mal's mate form Potts Point), she to busy working out who can fly their personal jet to New York for Mal's earthshattering, worst selling blockbuster flop book!...

Best think about his impending book launch, its probably made his publishers to gag him, to prevent him torpedoing the book launch, which will of course have to be 'physically distanced'.

As for Sky news UK... Chris Smith, really?, its so left-wing and biased towards BOJO, it makes the 'Their ABC" look tame!

Alison Jane,

yes, as I said, Sky UK is much different from Sky Australia.

Glad you noticed.

Funny how any view that disagrees with you is left wing.Still waiting to hear your views on Boris Johnson given he supports action to address global warming.

Just curious, is left wing a dirty phrase? Do left wingers not have anything decent to say.
