Media Circus: the plot sickens

Yes, I’m talking about the latest developments in the Slipper/Ashby accusations, and what I have no doubt will be a bunch of brickbat worthy opining in the MSM as a result.

As usual, please use this thread to throw your brickbats at egregious spin tactics and churnalism in the MSM and new media, but don’t forget to throw the odd bouquet when it’s deserved as well.

  1. Looks like the Olympics is doing its “Over There! A Distraction!” job particularly handily wrt Oz politics at the moment 🙂

  2. I can barely sleep at night not knowing what is happening with Peter Slipper et al. Oh wait, yes I can. I haven’t seen MrRabbit on my screen for weeks. Bliss.

  3. Brickbats to all the churnalists in London who can’t stop asking medal-winning athletes why they didn’t do better (i.e. win gold). Let them have their fucking moment you goons!

  4. Heh.

    Next time a journalist asks: “Are you disappointed with silver?” I hope the athlete says: “Are you disappointed being in a dying industry?”
