You’ve got to hand it to them. They do the look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under it like pros.

The professional purveyors of fabricated information, state-sanctioned invective, ambiguity between journalism and political power, present themselves without cracking a smile as trusted upholders of liberal democracies.

A liberal democracy functions when you can trust politicians you disagree with to keep to the rules of the game, to restrain themselves, to give space to civil society, to acknowledge the facts before disputing the policies, and to uphold fundamental rights and freedoms.

And then there’s Malta and we get Glenn Bedingfield and Rosianne Cutajar.

You guys really give meaning to the term face-palm.
