Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch

“Today we are switching our coverage of Donald Trump to an emergency setting”

“Refusing to go with live coverage. Suspending normal relations with his White House. Always asking: is this something we should amplify? A focus on what he’s doing, not on what he’s saying. The truth sandwich when we feel we have to highlight his false claims. This is what you can expect now that our coverage has been switched to an emergency setting.”

Cyrus Habib: Why I am giving up elected office and joining the Jesuits

“Many will be wondering why someone who has spent the last eight years climbing the political ladder and who has a not insignificant chance of acceding to the governorship next year, would trade a life of authority for one of obedience.
