The Daily Breakdown podcast is written, produced and hosted by me, David Murtagh, a Canberra-based journalist and podcaster.
I started The Daily Breakdown in September 2018 as a blog. It began life as an outlet for anger and frustration.
If you’re a conservative, you know the feeling because you see the evidence every day that the mainstream media has let you down. I found that I’d read a story or see a report and get the feeling that something wasn’t quite right. So I’d investigate further only to find that the watchdogs had become lapdogs. This isn’t a new phenomenon. It’s been happening for decades, but the election of Donald Trump made it worse.
The media operates under the mistaken and misguided belief that their role is to be our moral guides.
They feel they have a moral duty to change you because they think you’re morally inferior because you don’t believe what they believe.
This is bunkum.
So to further my reach, I started The Daily Breakdown podcast in January 2019.
The Breakdown is a 20-30 minute analysis of the big news stories of the day.
The purpose is to bring you elements of a story the media isn’t covering or isn’t asking about. Alarmingly, they miss a lot.
Listen to The Daily breakdown and you’ll be ahead of the curve.
