Turnbull fed up with 'dumbed down' reporting
LISTEN BELOW: Malcalm Turnbull speaks with Justin Smith
Federal Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull says Australia needs to keep up with the changing face of news as politicians and broadcasters get away with lying to the public.
On Thursday night he used a speech at the Woodford Folk Festival to accuse the media and politicians of treating Aussies with contempt by dumbing down complex issues into "one-line soundbites".
This morning Mr Turnbull told Justin Smith that while politicians shouldn't get away with lies journalists need to go back to fact-checking instead of being sucked into deadlines.
"I think the members of the public that I speak to or who speak to me are completely fed up and sick to death with one-liners and every political issue being dumbed down into soundbites,"
"The feedback that I get that Australian's recognise our very complex challenges and they expect their leaders to explain them" he said.

Turnbull backed the carbon tax because it was and still is, the right thing to do. Turnbull has shown great integrity and deserves another chance to lead this country.Peter Jeffries Saturday 29 December, 2012 - 10:34 AM
