And the Wankley goes to … the Daily Tele’s mobile radiation shield story

Wherever he was on Thursday, Stephen Fenech’s ears must have been burning, but it wasn’t because of harmful electromagnetic radiation from his mobile phone.

    speaking of Wankleys…what did the mention of who his brother is have to do with the story above? While we ‘re at it, by 100s of bloggers, what exactly do you mean? 100/500/900?

    Obvious troll is obvious Pete.

    I look forward to hearing about this travesty on Media watch next Monday…

    Erm…Pete?

    “It’s remarkable that Stephen Fenech does not acknowledge in any of his pieces that brother Mario promotes the Q-Link pendant, via a testimonial that reads like a scripted endorsement”

    Pretty sure that’s why.

    Anyone gullible enough to fall for bunkum like this has too much money and too little native intelligence. Magnetic blah blah, life force blah blah. What charlatans.

    in addition to the iPhone, the picture appears to show the iFeminineHygineProduct, making Apple the clear leader in exposing us to dangerous radiation. Could be interesting, as Apple lawyers tend to be on the attack-dog end of the legal spectrum.

    The article’s been pulled from the Daily Tele website. Fenech hasn’t tweeted since 11am yesterday. Things Are Afoot, methinks.

    Why blame the messenger?

    On what basis is this goose employed by the Tele? What standards of reportingare demanded by the Tele of its writers? Does the Tele give a continental about conflicts of interest?

    Come to think of it, on that last point, the answer can be found in the current slew of jobs held by the son and father of Limited News and related entities.

    This is really a story about quality control in the media, or lack thereof. That Fenech is no smarter or ethical than his sibling is beside the point.

    I don’t think that’s true at all John. The responsibility has to lay with the journalist, no matter what publication s/he works for.
