Australian TV News: The Fourth Estate on the Third Estate
"private education and private health care would be considered necessities these days"
Ron Wilson, Channel Ten Morning News, 6 June 2011.
I guess plebs don't watch the news. Ron Wilson reminds us who the news is really made for while giving a cheery report on young people entering the housing market.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 'in 2010 66% of students in Australia attended government schools, 20% attended Catholic schools and 14% attended independent schools'.
As for health care, DFAT reports that 'forty-three per cent of the population' have private health insurance.
