Part 1: The Mud Slinging, Meme Hustling, Rage Baiting Sites You Need To Know Before The Next Election
A bunch of new partisan political websites are fighting for the narrative in the run-up to the federal election. Reporter Graeme Gordon is here to tell you which organizations to look out for on your Facebook and Twitter feeds, what their political objectives are, and who’s paying for them.
CORRECTION (Jan.7, 2019): In this episode, reporter Graeme Gordon mistakenly states that North99 Director Taylor Scollon previously worked with Navigator Ltd, the crisis communications PR firm. In fact, it was North99 co-founder Geoff Sharpe who previously worked with Navigator. We regret the error.
Part 2: Rex Murphy Vs. A Dead Guy
