Australian comedian Christian Hull has taken to social media, calling on the media for unbiased reporting.
Hull’s callout comes as a product of the current sexual assault claims that have come to light, involving members of the Liberal Party of Australia.
After what seems like much dodging from those being accused and related parties, Defence Minister Linda Reynolds was admitted to hospital, announcing that she would be taking a sudden period of medical leave.

Hull captioned his call-out video, “I just want the media to be fair and balanced. That’s it. It’s gone too far. Correction: Fairfax own the SMH. They are also extremely one sided as you can see. Yet another extremely bias outlet not to mention Sky News…they don’t even have any stories up on the allegations.”
He begins his video by saying, “Here is quite possibly the biggest political scandal in Australia’s history. Four women have come forward to allege that a Liberal staffer in the walls of Parliament House, sexually assaulted them. Two women are alleging rape. This country is controlled by media mogul Rupert Murdoch who owns a monopoly on all media here and he is a staunch liberal.”
Hull continues, “Australian politicians are scared of him. Why? Because he has the power to put so much pressure via his media outlets.”
The comedian then continues his video by jumping on The Sydney Morning Herald website, pointing out the top and recent news stories the newspaper has running on the day.
What is glaringly obvious? The story of the alleged rapes appears right at the very bottom of the site, also with no pictures.
Hull continues, “The media in this country are not reporting this… what is going on? What the fuck is happening?”
