What was meant to be a discussion on the impacts of the AUKUS pact gave former PM Paul Keating an opportunity to spout truths as he launched into the mainstream media at the National Press Club on 15 March.

Clearly frustrated by ignorant questions and a lack of critical thinking on the media's behalf, Keating didn't hold back as he unleashed some choice words against the likes of the ABC's Andrew Probyn and Matthew Knott from the Sydney Morning Herald, who awkwardly tried to explain that his “journalism” contributes to the national debate.

Keating had no fear in telling it like it is, explaining to Knott:

The Sydney Morning Herald, frankly, is a newspaper without integrity.
