The author reflects on the absurdity of media amid the failure of the U.S. Government's $700 billion bailout proposal, with regards to the superannuation fund in Australia. He cites that foremost to the media's absurdness was the suggestion that the country's superannuation balances had been placed at risks. He contends that Australia's superannuation funds are well regulated, no matter what some industry and media commentators might imply.
