This is the published profile of one anti-science print, radio and television journalist writing for The Australian:
Commentator, author and former political adviser, Chris Kenny, takes an unashamedly rationalist approach - with an emphasis on the good and the free - to all that matters in national affairs. Follow Chris on Twitter @chriskkenny
His column which has been online since November 2011 is relentlessly anti-Labor – so it should come as no surprise that the unnamed political party he ‘advised’ was the Liberal Party of Australia.
Sometime in 2002 he joined then Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s staff, where he remained until the Howard Government’s election defeat in 2007. He then went on to serve as Chief of Staff to then Leader of the Opposition, Malcolm Turnbull. Before moving into the federal sphere he had been Director of Strategic Communications for South Australian Premier John Olsen and Chief of Staff to Olsen’s successor Rob Kerin and, he once stood for Liberal Party pre-selection in the state seat of Unly - so one could assume he may still be a member of the Liberal Party.
A history which should have seen The Australian insist that his published profile name him as a former Liberal Party political advisor for its readers’ edification.
