Our media is in thrall to the busybody worrywarts of the public health bureaucracy. From the Sydney Morning Herald from earlier today:

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has faced a number of questions about who was invited to today’s press conference: for the first time in a significant period, the update today is being held without a representative from NSW Health present…

“We’re the elected officials,” he said, justifying this morning’s all-minister press conference line-up.

A leader stands up for accountability and democracy — yet is reported in a way that suggests he said something sinister?

Are there any grown-ups left in the media at all?
