Greg Jericho is a Walkley Award-winning economics writer for Guardian Australia. He lectures in journalism at the University of Canberra and tweets at @GrogsGamut.
Here I ask Greg about his political worldview, his thoughts on economics and GM closing Holden in Australia, his time in the public service (and the state of the service now), and how the media’s obsession with “balance” is completely failing us when it comes to covering climate change.

Had a ball taking on the MICF Great Debate again! I lead the affirmative team alongside the tremendous DeAnne Smith and Andy Zaltzman against the evil and depraved Sammy J, Janelle James and Rhys Nicholson on the topic: “YOU’VE GOT TO FAKE NEWS TO MAKE NEWS.”
It was all hosted by Stephen K. Amos and it was jolly good fun.
