With Crusher in crosshairs, Bully ed slams critics

Gold Coast Bulletin editor Peter Gleeson is defiant over his besieged star motorsport columnist Brett "Crusher" Murray; but there's another story to watch at The Bully. Gleeson spoke exclusively to Crikey.

Trailblazing Gold Coast Bulletin editor Peter Gleeson says he will “review” the future of motorsport writer Brett “Crusher” Murray after Media Watch accused the car spruiker of favouring paid clients without proper disclosure.

  1. The diving swan

    Wouldn’t it be great if someone started sitting on top of journalists and reported their various foibles? Power’s conduct is irrelevant to his ability to act as Mayor. How about we let pollies use their influence to help their spouses get a leg up? The rank hypocrisy of these people doesn’t cease to amaze does it?

    Thanks to Gleeson’s number on Power, we have now ended up with Tom Tate as Mayor, and he has quickly shown his contempt for the electorate at every turn. I hope you guys at Crikey are keeping a close eye on both Tate and the GCB’s Chief Reporter Shannon Whilloughby’s relationship via their pursual of a Cruise Ship Terminal on the Gold Coast. They have blazed trails, together with Federal Member Steve Ciobo, through the US and China, resulting in the Mayor and Campbell Newman offering the last piece of beachfront land on the Gold Coast (the Spit) for sale for $1. It would be funny, if it wasn’t reality.
