Ep21: Alan Jones does it again! Hong Kong protests and we talk to Tonightly’s Greta Lee Jackson

On our latest ep we look at Alan Jones blaming the Sydney stabbing rampage on a lack of Doris Day movies and fruit paintings (?!?!) as well as the Aussies inconvenienced by the Hong Kong protests.

We also look at the Australian press freedom inquiry and then discuss the state of satire in Australia in our first ever interview with Greta Lee Jackson on the first anniversary of the axing of the late night show Tonightly with Tom Ballard. Listen & watch below!

Aussie Boris Johnson!

Finally a new episode is out! And it’s all about the influence of Australia on Boris Johnson, the leading candidate to be British PM. Spent over a month researching and writing this one (mostly due to other work) but made sure to avoid all the usual wacky Boris clips you’ve seen a thousand times before. A lot of work went into it and I’m really proud of it. Watch and listen below:

Jam packed final pre-election ep up!

In the jam-packed very last episode of News Fighters before the election, we wrap up last weekend’s Liberal campaign launch in Melbourne (which was also Josh Frydenberg’s leadership campaign launch). And just because ScoMo got a sweeping biography film at the Liberal launch does’t mean the Labor leader doesn’t deserve one, so we present “Bill Shorten: Human of the People”. Also: ScoMo finally forced to declare who he thinks is going to hell.

Here’s the Bill Shorten campaign bio film:
