The vicious Murdoch tabloid attack on House of Representatives Speaker Peter Slipper has taken an even uglier turn this morning. Now he’s not just a Liberal rat but a sleazy sexual harasser – and a homosexual one at that.

An editorial in Melbourne’s Herald Sun attempts to explain why this story is being displayed so prominently.

In my reading there is a clear attempt to enlist some old fashioned homophobia as a weapon to get rid of the Speaker and thus weaken Labor’s hold on power. Others may see it differently but a fair minded person would consider this story from this morning’s Weekend Australian before rushing to judgment.
