Bass and Braddon are firmly in federal Labor's sights as it starts planning for the 2022 election.
An internal Labor "target seat media summary" mistakenly emailed to The Advocate on Tuesday showed the two Tasmanian seats, which Labor lost to the Liberals in the May election, were among Labor's key priorities.
The list provides Labor insiders with links to key politics-related stories from media outlets seen as vital within the seats Labor is particularly targeting for 2022.
In Tasmania, the media outlets included were Braddon-based The Advocate and The Examiner, which focuses on Launceston and Northern Tasmania, an area taking in Bass and much of Lyons.
Other outlets monitored included a selection in Queensland - where Labor struggled in the election - The Newcastle Herald and The Illawarra Mercury in New South Wales, The Geelong Advertiser and some in Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Tuesday stories from 17 media outlets were listed.
Tasmanian Labor Senator Anne Urquhart said Labor respected the will of voters in Bass and Braddon.
"We are listening to their views and concerns and will redouble our efforts to connect," Senator Urquhart said.
"The Advocate and Examiner are important voices for regional Tasmania and, of course, it's important for my colleagues across the country to know what are the key issues on the ground.
"In particular, I am concerned that the Coalition's income tax cuts overwhelmingly benefit high income earners in mainland capital cities, with Braddon, Bass and Lyons big losers."
She said Anthony Albanese's first visit as Labor Leader was to Tasmania's North and North-West.
