Australian National Editor Dennis Shanahan told Ray Hadley Scott Morrison has handled the texting saga as best as he can.
“What else can he do?”
Mr Shanahan thinks the ongoing situation is damaging for the Liberal party saying, “it distracts the government from what it wants to talk about”.
“The real problem is the distraction from the real conversation.”
