Last night and this morning I had an interesting twitter conversation with my former press gallery colleague Steve Lewis @lewiss50, who broke the story of Ashby’s court action. Twitter conversations can be higgildy piggildy because others jump in and it’s hard to keep track of the order of remarks. Still, our exchange raises questions about the role and obligations of the journalist which academic media people may wish to extrapolate for us. It was triggered by this tweet at the beginning of Tony Abbott’s press club speech on January 31, and if it continues, I’ll update.
Margo: Steve Lewis is the National Press Club’s choice to host Tony Abbott. Thus #Ashby stares citizens in the face – mocking us.
Steve: Margo, nice to hear from you Trust you are well Steve
Margo: Trying to get to the bottom of #Ashby. Hope you are too.
