The mainstream media really gives me the pip sometimes. The recent reaction to the revelation that Kevin Rudd visited a strip club four years ago is one of those things which irritates me.
If Rudd had misued his position of power in some way, perhaps there would be some reason for the incident to be raised. But otherwise, I think it is utterly irrelevant to the upcoming federal election. I’d prefer that the press focus on real issues. The same would go if the revelations were about any other politician from any other party.
