The most surprising element in #NikiSavva’s column in the SMH today was ⁦@TimWilsonMP⁩ being described as a “leadership aspirant.” Is that terror I see in Dutton’s eyes..?

Lamentations on the death of #MaxStahl. A start on the British kids' show Blue Peter led to an uncommonly courageous journalistic career. His footage of Dili's Santa Cruz massacre turned the tide against Indonesia's occupation of #TimorLeste. RIP.

So honoured to receive “Broadcaster of the Year” from @londonpressclub . Journalism is never the work of one individual. That’s not being modest - it’s a fact. So was pleased @tonyprod77 & @DearZari could go in my place. This is what I sent .

This photo means so much to me. It was taken 8 years ago today, on the day my foster son graduated from high school. He had arrived in Australia 4 years previously, 14 years old, with no family with him and barely a word of English. 1/ #ActionForAfghanistan #HazaraLivesMatter

I love that @MontagueStBridg has its own twitter account. Might be short, but it’s big.

As always, there’s a #GeorgeOrwell quote to warn against bad habits: “The truth, it is felt, becomes untruth when your enemy utters it.”

WATCH: Dept of PM&C's Stephanie Foster appears to wink at Simon Birmingham (and/or colleagues) during #estimates, as she's grilled about Christian Porter's anonymous donations and the timeline of internal discussions regarding whether or not these were compliant with standards.

#BarnabyJoyce is refusing to deny that part of the Nationals’ deal in supporting net-zero by 2050 is a fifth spot in Cabinet. “That’s a decision for the Prime Minister,” he tells @frankelly08
