Spin doctors to block the news

Interesting revelation in Sydney Morning Herald that the Scott Morrison's Immigration Department employs a team of 66 spin doctors media liaison officers.

That's up from just 13 a couple of years ago.

It's our taxes that pay their salaries, and as it's the most secretive of all the ministries we seem to be paying them to block any news getting out to us.

That was borne out by this para in the story: (We) asked the Immigration Department to comment on staffing levels, but were referred to Mr Morrison's media team, who did not respond to questions.
