Media briefs: Fitzshamelessness ... Tony Gillard ... Walkley back pats ...

Last Saturday, every newspaper in the country seemed to run a page two story patting itself on the back for how its journalists and photographers "scooped" the field at Friday's Walkley Awards. Plus other media news.

Show us your Walkleys. Last Saturday, every newspaper in the country seemed to run a page two story patting itself on the back for how its journalists and photographers “scooped” the field at Friday’s Walkley Awards.

Special mention to The Daily Telegraph, which ran two articles on its photographers winning (on page three and page 24), yet failed to mention a single other Walkley winner from other publications.

Fitzshameless strikes again! In honour of Peter FitzSimons and the many other journos shamelessly attempting to spruik their latest tome in articles and radio broadcasts around the country, Crikey launched The FitzShameless Awards. Yet when it comes to blatantly using a newspaper column to promote the writer’s latest book, no one can out-Fitzshameless the bandanna wearing columnist himself. From today’s Sydney Morning Herald:

Man bites dog! Utterly flabbergasted that the ABC missed its chance to use the immortal headline:

Julia’s brother Tony? A classic typo by Gemma Jones in today’s Advertiser

Front page of the day. The Jerusalem Post responds to the United Nation’s decision to grant Palestine “non-member observer state” status, report that the decision “drew intense international criticism”.
