Julia Gillard has stared down another challenge to her leadership and is still Australia’s Prime Minister despite massive pressure from both the media and her fellow Labor MP’s today.

Despite pressure from Simon Crean, Kevin Rudd stood firm on his promise not to challenge Julia Gillard for the leadership of the ALP.

But despite seemingly having stared down all challengers, Julia Gillard failed to manage to even table Labor’s contentious media “reform” bill in the House of Representatives in an embarrassing backdown.

Wow. Just wow.
