EDITOR INCOMPETENT

Best-selling author Antony Loewenstein has sold only 5987 copies of his painful book, according to the Australian’s Amanda Meade. I blame the media blackout. Also from Amanda:

The latest high jinx from The Age came when senior news editor Patrick Smithers, usually very patient, shocked the evening editorial floor when he yelled and hurled his mobile phone across the room, apparently after one too many calls from editor-in-chief Andrew Jaspan. One of Jaspan’s habits is to demand every story be printed because he is not yet competent on the computer system.

Please, Andrew. Think of the trees.
