... and now, the top soccer stories in Tassie newspapers today:
The Examiner - "Launceston may host Harry Kewell".
The Mercury - "FFT investigates brawl".
Just another example of how biased The Mercury is.
Still not convinced?
Of the thirteen top stories in the Mercury soccer section, six are about the "racial abuse" issue (the rest are local club news and match results). However, in that time period (19 June - 8 July), The Mercury has also published articles about soccer workshops during World Refugee Day ("Kicking off a new life", 26 June) and an update on the Tassie A-League bid ("Tassie A-team in the pipeline", 30 June). Why aren't these articles included? Too positive? Don't they suit The Mercury's point of view?
This isn't unique to the Tasmanian media - it happens all across the country, sometimes it is subtle, often it is patently obvious. In any case, nothing is going to change if we stay silent!
