Myanmar holding two Reuters journalists for more than 500 days is merely an indicator of an anti-media sentiment that is growing worldwide.
From national hero, to icon, to pariah. The fall of Aung San Suu Kyi has been staggeringly quick, but how did this exactly happen?
The last work week of the year would unfortunately not go quietly, as Donald Trump eviscerated the taxation system, complicated violent sped through the Melbourne CBD and history was made at the end of a cuff.
To many in the West, Aung San Suu Kyi has suffered a terrible reverse. But look closer and the Suu Kyi that fit our superhero narrative was exactly that: fiction.
Oh, the week it was. We found out that Trumble is sleeping on the couch, AusPol kicked back into its petty stride and Fox Sports fought a bloke who televised a fight.
