Nikongate, complete with smoking lens(*)

Anonymous Lefty has an excellent post on the tabloid character assassination of Mark Latham over his contretemps with a press photographer following him around when he was with his children.


…like we all wouldn’t get the impulse if some useless slimebag was perving on us with our kids.

Same papers that would run a hint of a child abuse story like a bus on the smell of an oily rag.

Hypocrites. Latham has heaps of flaws, but sticking up for the privacy of his kids isn’t one of them.”

*hat-tip to Andrew in the above thread for coming up with a descriptor so perfect I just had to rip it off for the post title.
