Carr's support for Gillard in doubt
Peter Hartcher from the SMH has told Paul Murray he was astonished hearing Foreign Minister Bob Carr's sudden deceleration of support for the Prime Minister, and stands by his story which says otherwise.
Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter
Political Editor Pater Hartcher reported Senator Carr and cabinet minister Mark Butler were reconsidering their support for the prime minister.
The report said Senator Carr was disenchanted and angered by Ms Gillard's handling of two policy matters, one being her decision not to alert cabinet that it was going to discuss media policy last week.
But the foreign minister, who met his counterpart overnight in the United States, quickly dismissed the allegations in a press release, stating the comments attributed to him were incorrect and no comment was sought from his office.
He later reaffirmed his faith in Prime Minister Gillard and accused the media of whipping up speculation around the Labor leadership.
Bob Carr one of two senior ministers reconsidering support for PM.

Regarding the relentless poll driven media; it is easier for journalists to simply regurgitate this information, rather than write actual stories. You know, policies and such, which always takes a back seat, whilst the media are only concentrating on personalities, and who is jockeying for the top job. All this information is filtered, controlled and slanted to reflect the viewpoints that they want the public to believeDouglas Tuesday 19 March, 2013 - 12:54 PM
