I am a Twitter user but I rarely tweet. I don't have the time to devote to it. I think one of the last times I tweeted anything, I suggested the Queen might be taking down a portrait of herself from her wall. It was a cryptic tweet, but I expected a media explosion to follow. Nothing. That was months ago.
Let me make it clear here and now. I just googled Rolf Harris arrested and there is not one Australian mainstream media link coming up. I put his name into a couple of Australian newspaper's search areas, and nothing. Australian media is pretty well free to say anything about him, within libel laws. There is no threat to any pending legal action in England from what is said in Australia.
What is going on here? Surely this is news. Eventually it will all come out, so why is our media not reporting the matter. They don't have to make a scandal of it. A simple, 'Rolf Harris has been arrested on charges of...'.
Related, ex ABC personality Andy Muirhead has been released from prison in Tasmania. He sure got off lightly as far as his sentence goes, but who would now possibly employ him. Prison was the lesser punishment he received. The despise from all who liked him was surely worse.
