Why is there no debate on the debate?

On Friday night at Windsor RSL we had a leaders' debate. Well it wasn't a debate really but whatever it was Shorten won it hands down according to the punters who attended.There was a scorecard!  It was 42-29. That is as comprehensive defeat as you can get.

However if you read around you will find it very hard to find this out. The Murdoch press appears to have banned the scorecard and only give its writer's opinion.

This is a shame. if journalists did their job it would provide very interesting reading on why they voted the way they did!
