John Birmingham last week in the Sydney Morning Herald:
He revels in the bile directed at him for his relentless assaults on Greenpeace, the ALP, John Kerry, the ABC, arts grants recipients, grieving war mum Cindy Sheehan, human shields in Baghdad, Phillip Adams, global warming doom-mongers, The Age editor-in-chief Andrew Jaspan and clueless pop stars. “A freakin’ smorgasbord!” as he puts it.
And John Birmingham in The Age today:
He revels in the bile directed at him for his relentless assaults on Greenpeace, the ALP, John Kerry, the ABC, arts grants recipients, grieving war mum Cindy Sheehan, human shields in Baghdad, Phillip Adams, global warming doom-mongers and clueless pop stars. “A freakin’ smorgasbord!” as he puts it.
A smorgasbord—but now with one missing ingredient! Jaspan is apparently very sensitive.
- Good thing you never called Jaspan an arsehole, Tim, or your punishment would be a minimum of two trite editorials directed at you.Posted by PW on 2006 01 27 at 09:36 PM • permalink
- How does Japsan have a sense of humour ?Posted by closeapproximation on 2006 01 27 at 10:57 PM • permalink
- What a delicate little flower Andrew Jaspan is.
Jaspan is going to be run out of town. The rising tide of disgust and outrage about The Age’s sinister leftism is about to engulf him.
Bring on Macquarie’s hostile takeover.Posted by Andrew Landeryou on 2006 01 27 at 11:09 PM • permalink
- Why would anyone want to buy it? It’s editorial coverage is a joke; its billion-dollar printing outfit is constantly breaking down; truck drivers say even its loading bays aren’t properly designed for efficient loading; it’s golden rivers of classified ads are drifting to online sites like SEEK; and among those taking the generous payouts are a handful of truly smart newspaper people who will be irreplaceable. If it weren’t for the thousands of papers they dump gratis at schools every day their circulation would ring alarm bells all over the big end of town. I’m told they are soon to launch the Sunday Aged as tabloid. More crap in the bin outside the newsagents.
A smorgasbord—but now with one missing ingredient!
I’m afraid we’re fresh out of Jaspan, sir, but we’ll get it first thing on Monday.Posted by Spiny Norman on 2006 01 28 at 12:46 AM • permalink
- If I was Jaspan I would have put it in and loved it, but hey that’s just me.
Just been looking at Birmingham’s article (I live in Melbourne, of course I buy The Age).
Of course, taking the mick out of the Left has been done many,
many times.Posted by Major Anya on 2006 01 28 at 03:20 AM • permalink
- I thought it was very interesting that Birmingham, a regular contributor to the Bulletin, should be so generous in his praise to our Timmy, deputy editor of… the Bulletin! And all in the pages of the despised SMH… it’s all so very interesting and so very cosy.Posted by Miranda Divide on 2006 01 30 at 01:09 PM • permalink
- That’s nice, dear. (pat pat). Look, the traffic is moving! Run along and play in it, won’t you?Posted by Stoop Davy Dave on 2006 01 30 at 05:05 PM • permalink
