Just when you think the Herald Scum couldn't stoop any lower, then they post this early this morning...

I came into work today and met with panicked staff. This garbage is just not necessary.
It's disgraceful, now Daniel Andrews is panicking people by announcing a 5 day stay at home lockdown.....

Can you clarify exactly what was incorrect in that report? Given Andrew's announcement it appears someone at the HUN has a very good source inside the Andrews' Govt.

As did the The Age and the ABC but you won’t hear progressives screaming about them.

i'm not referring to lockdown, but the "on the brink of a third wave" headline. disgraceful is not a strong enough word to decribe those $%#*$ (4 letter word beginning with C). Its as if they are hoping for the worst. They don't give a stuff about Victorians at all.

I detest Murdoch and the HUN as much as anybody, but I really don't see that headline as being anywhere near low has they have been, or can be.

What's more surprising is so many people still read it.

Are we not on the brink of a third wave? Isn’t that why we are going into to lockdown to prevent?

Dan himself said the lockdown was to stop the third wave. So Dan and his experts must have thought they were on the cusp.
i don't wait for Dans Facebook feed for my news. Plenty of outlets were across the likelihood of it. But You want them to stay mute about the leaks they are getting from the inner sanctum of Dans circle so people don't get scared?

Plenty of posters on PRE were confidently predicting NSW December outbreak would amount to several thousand cases, their wish for it to escalate was palpable.

Murdoch reminds me of Blofeld from the 007 movies. All that's missing is a cat.

What's happening with Rudd's push for a Royal Commission into Murdoch?
