Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has accused Fairfax Media of working against the government.
Speaking on ABC’s morning program, Dutton said there “was a huge move” from Fairfax Media to bring down the Government, adding some journalists have “morphed into frustrated politicians”, according to the ABC.
“I think regardless of what Tony Abbott does, Fairfax will say it’s bad,” he said.
“They aren’t supposed to be political players, they’re supposed to be objective reporters of the news and I think many of them have morphed into frustrated politicians.”
The ABC reporter brought up it was a similar criticism when Julia Gillard was Prime Minister and the articles News Corp wrote at the time.
“You asked me what I think of the current political environment, I think that’s part of the problem,” said Dutton.
