Look out, Robert Lusetich! You’re being investigated in comments. Expect no mercy. Meanwhile, in other media-watching news, Andrew Bolt deals with our pals at the ABC and SBS.

    1. On the topic of playing host to our enemies,it seems that Britain has got a wakeup call after allowing militants to preach hatred for years without any interference.

    1. Another Bolt through the hearts (the minds seem impervious) of the stooges.

    1. great article andrew!
      no more pussyfooting with the seditious ABC and SBS and the like of Negus who will be in the seclusion of their italian villas when ordinary Australians get blown up on buses or at train stations.
      And lets do away with the strip searching of little old ladies for the sake of pleasing the ABC or SBS.
      We must start using fear in the same ways that islamist use it.Anything else and they will just continue to exploit and laugh at us

    1. This is the story about the British mistake in harbouring militants and agitators.

    1. Stephen Mayne reveals his inadequacies as a media commentator today in Crikey’s mailout by praising Jackson’s (Marr’s?) attack with a wet lettuce leaf on Bolt.

    1. Talking of media botches, The Age / SMH is saying that polled people reckon we’re at increased risk of terrorism whereas they were asked whether we’re a bigger target:

      War in Iraq raised terror risk, say 66%
      (The headline, which is sometimes the only thing people read)

      The Government has consistently argued that Australia’s vulnerability is not specifically increased by being in the Iraq war. But this is rejected by the public: 66 per cent believe Australia is a greater target because of the war, while 30 per cent said it makes no difference.

      Fifty per cent of Coalition voters thought the involvement in Iraq made Australia more of a terrorist target, while 79 per cent of Labor voters and 88 per cent of Greens voters believed it had boosted the risk.

      Labor foreign affairs spokesman Kevin Rudd said yesterday that Mr Howard continued to refuse to accept “the reality that Australia’s involvement (in Iraq) has increased the overall terrorist threat”.

      Wait a moment, that last statement isn’t Fairfax’s fault, it’s Rudd’s.

      Talk about a “small target” strategy!

    1. Is Mayne making a living from that piece of tatt?

      I remember shortly before giving up my MEAA membership in 2000 that he was bleating that he’d spent a motza on a costume character and plush offices but no-one would pay to read what he wrote.

      Pathetic really

    1. And of course the opinion of the man on the street in Australia is always an accurate measure of actual danger.

    1. Re #9

      Actually, Assistant Village Idiot, the man on the street in Australia often has quite a good sense of impending danger. Look at the last Federal election result, for example, and the emphatic response to the Latham band-wagon.

    1. BTW, Robert Lusetich, what the hell’s wrong with the Kingswood??? How dare you….!!

    1. Thank Christ for Andrew Bolt!
      That’s all I can say!

    1. Astounding! Obvious stung by the vigilance of Tim Blair’s readers, Media Watch has made a correction to the Phil Gould piece. It is here.

    1. Perhaps they can now act on another suggestion and disband. They are useless.
