Dr Mumbo

Nothing to see here folks…

So Kim Williams is gone and Dr Mumbo really doesn’t know where the accusations that News Corp Australia is running a vendetta against Kevin Rudd and Labor come from.

Sure today’s Courier Mail welcome the return of former Premier Peter Beattie with a front page splash that reads: “Send in the Clown”. But it’s not like there is a steady stream of negative front pages…


Well not unless you count yesterday’s effort which photoshopped Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Deputy Prime Minister Anthony Albanese as Nazis, in a scene out straight out of 60s sitcom Hogan Heroes.Tele

And this of course followed Monday’s effort which, Dr Mumbo notes, editor Paul Whittaker is today taking full credit for, (‘Telegraph insiders’ are quite clear that the controversial Col Allan had nothing to do with it, reports The Australian).

The front page with a photo of Rudd and declaring “Kick this mob out” has made international news as the media speculates about a Rupert Murdoch agenda.

But viewed in it’s full totality there’s really nothing to see here folks…

Dr Mumbo awaits the next four weeks of the campaign with much interest.
