Last night’s Media Watch 20th anniversary special was pure journalistic porn. Crikey loved reliving Stuart Littlemore’s giant specs, David Marr’s single, menacing arched eyebrow, the rainbow shirt that Ray Martin wore as he throttled John Safran, Derryn’s Hinch’s beard and Chris Mitchell’s remarkable hair (Crikey suggests he shares a penchant for hairdryers with his offspring’s godfather?).

All capped by 20 years of Wankley-worthy stories, including, of course, the Gold Walkley winning Cash for Comment scandal story.

So Media Watch , today Crikey salutes you, and what better way to do that than by bestowing upon John Laws this week’s Wankley?

Laws’ unedited interview, aired in its ugly entirety last night, showed that ol’ Golden Tonsils still doesn’t get it.


Laws, here’s a Golden Wankley to match your burnished throat.
