A naïve young media worker was humiliated in front of her entire team for a serious misstep today.

The aspiring journalist attending the morning press conference allegedly suggested doing a story about people manipulating legal loopholes to set up complex companies in tax havens to avoid paying taxes and repercussions on illegal shit .

His pitch came following the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and the ABC revealing details found in The Pandora Papers.

The Pandora Papers, similar to the Panama Papers, are 12 million financial documents relating to many wealthy people who transfer their money through secret offshore accounts, so they can do dodgy things that take too long and are difficult for the authorities bother to try to uncheck and do something.

Although it is a notable story against the backdrop of wealthy figures embezzling tax money, international figures buying up property and pricing Australians off the market and corrupt business dealings, the Sky producer News has been informed that this is not something her employers are interested in.

“Read the room,” laughed one of the former media men who has spent a career distracting the nation from the dodgy corporate shit going on with stories about “welfare cheaters.”

“Why would a company that always operates at a loss, pays no taxes and has multiple stakes in multiple countries want to start talking about people and companies engaging in illegal and morally corrupt behavior,” he said. he declares.

“That would be shooting yourself in the foot.”

“We may as well come out and start talking about the people in the North Shore and the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney who are not following the public health rules.”

“You might want to be a journalist, but it’s a media game, and you have to try to anticipate what people upstairs want to see if you want to progress.”

“What about a story of young people attacking the new NSW Prime Minister for being religious, and how does that expose a double standard being preached by the acceptance brigade on social media?”

“Now that’s a story!”

The room then patted each other on the back with all the guys nodding in agreement.

More soon.
