Sky News has given Christine Milne's press conference about the Chan/Sukumaran executions this morning a good deal of prominence with live TV coverage, repeats every half hour and more than a dozen Tweets from Sky about Milne like this -
Who cares what Christine Milne thinks about this issue? We might as well feature the opinions of Mrs Francis from No 27 or Aunty Joan for all Milne's opinions add to the matter. Everyone has an opinion on this morning's events, so why is Milne's receiving similar prominence to the Prime Minister's?
Who cares what The Greens think? It's an important question with an important answer - and that answer is - the press gallery cares.
The Press Gallery stamp of approval is irrelevant to most of us. Have they checked with Bob Katter to get his views along with The Greens?
We'd be much better off with the fringe looney tunes Greens being relegated to the background, down with the fairies at the bottom of the garden.
By comparison here is a statement that is important - from the Government of Australia.
And you have to feel for the families of the dead drug felons who released this statement this morning.
