    Crikey is well and truly dead - killed by left wing fanatics who bastardised the bi-partisan approach that symbolised it for so long.

    On one page, you have Keane abusing anyone who does not share his opinion, be it on environmental issues or IR. Another page is dedicated to attacking journalists who support the right.

    This abuse does not encourage debate, it effectively censures it. The fact that they were attempting to be covert for a few years is irrelevant.

    So what will Crikey do when membership really starts to drop? When revenue starts to really dry up? Hopefully disappear.

    Debate on crikey is dead – killed by these so called journalists.

    Isn’t Andrew Bolt a dickhead every day?
    Let’s just call 3rd of June Rightard Day and give out the Bolt award in honor of the dickhead.

    I will take chocolate biscuits to Thursday’s staff meeting in celebration of NABIADD.

    Glad to see the interpretive dance bandicoot is getting involved - I await more claims of ABC bias. But why do all the dancing doggies look like they are taking a piss? Or are they taking THE piss? Subtle. Nice.

    @ Callum
    Which party AB supports is irrelevant, it is his dickheadedness which makes him special. It’s sweet that you count his support of the Right as something positive - you’re so inclusive.

    If anyone qualifies for the epithet ‘useful idiot’ it is he. Sadly, he has the effect of making the Right look mean, pompous and stupid to anyone else.

    February 30 — Andrew Bolt Isn’t A Dickhead Day.

    You are quite right to remind us of this important national celebration FDOTM… and Andrew’s achievements have been worthy of celebration this last 12 months too!

    Shall we list the ways that Andrew has excelled as a dickhead over the last 12 months? I’ll start.

    My personal favourite was the defending of Piers (Arsehat) Ackerman’s misattribution of former IPCC chairman and British Met Office CEO Sir John Houghton by attempting to find another sentence in Houghton’s book that contained the word “disaster” and spuriously linking the two.

    This was followed fairly closely by his defamation of Tim Lambert following that gentleman’s debate in February with the potty peer Lord Monckton, in which Andrew stated he was “vituperative, deceptive, a cherrypicker, an ideologue, a misrepresenter and a Manichean conspiracist only too keen to smear a sceptic as a crook who lies for Exxon’s dollars”.

    Any others that spring to mind?

    Even you should know that, with the exception of the Fairfax media, all the MSM is hard right-wing. As is the man who owns it all, Rupert Murdoch. The man who re-wrote the history books with his inflexible ‘Right is right, so write it’ dogma.

    With all of the ‘purchased press’ rushing around to bag Kevin Rudd-baggable though he be- not one of you asks the question. “Why did the Labor Party get into power?”

    The answer being “After eleven years of John Winston Howard and his band of thugs, the electorate was desperate to get rid them.”

    Is any rational individual likely to comment about anybody engaged in people’s choice popularity contests at this juncture, as did Elizabeth Barrett Browning in Sonnet 43 (Sonnets from the Portuguese, 1850) :neutral:

    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
    I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
    My soul can reach.

    I, Sandshoe, wish I could say about someone in this contest, as did Elizabeth Barrett Browning in that Sonnet 43 :neutral:

    I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
    With my lost saints.

    I, as well, Sandshoe, say the People seem to be unheard (of). Given I have no wit neither further words of my own at this juncture :neutral:

    Like read your excellent ‘toons - and the comments of our august Dogonauts.

    Grow up Callum. The more left wing media we have in this country the more balanced the media will be. Because the overwhelming majority of the mainstream is right wing, as Venise Alstergren said. Can’t hack some progressive media like Crikey? Then go to the Australian, the Daily Telegraph, ABC or any of the other right wing outlets. We desperately need Crikey and Fairfax to provide SOME balance against the hard right News Ltd and their ABC.

    So how come Sydney gets shlumpadinkas like Piers Akerman and the Glenn Milne Kazoo Orchestra? I reckon fashion savant Carson Kressley should host The Andrew Bolt Annual “Cut the Conservative” starting this year with Bolt himself. Minus his college boy comb-over, suede jackets and checked shirts Bolt could look like this: http://bit.ly/dqalKR

    His post stating that oils spills are not that bad was great evidence of his dickheadedness which has been completely outdone by his current posts defending Israel’s right to board boats in international waters and then kill people who try to repel these borders. What a prick.

    As a side thought…..

    The Herald Scum - rarely ever allows comments on it’s “Google copy paste” articles any more.

    The lack of a dynamic infighting or commentary is usually a sign that:

    a) The paper is run by arseholes; and

    b) Stupid arseholes at that - because:

    (i) If people are not commenting, then they are usually disinclined to read the cheap shit “Herald Scum” copy paste article; and

    (ii) If people are not reading the articles; then their worthless and shitty advertising and the revenue from the sales; are not worth anything either.

    So while the likes of Andrew Bolt and the corporate pricks who publish that shit carry on, the best readers and harvesters of community consciousness, are usually pointing out great stuff to read - as it happens, on sites like http://slashdot.org/ and possibly even here…

    And the comments are full of livid infighting and commentary - and unlike Bolt’s bullshit - you can actually learn quite a lot.

    And I also note that Bolt and the Herald Scum never gets a mention on the really good sites….. why? Because Bolt and his bum chums are slowly whirling away in the back waters of history.

    Which was exactly as I was doing.

    Or do you have a plan to destroy First Dog with your own self-opinionated crap? You have become such a determined bore in other areas of Crikey that everyone else ignores you. Yet you now wish to contaminate this blissful oasis. [Play nice - FD]
