Media briefs: Greens’ ad pulled … Sat Paper expands … Bard B-day …

The Greens say The Sydney Morning Herald pulled their ad because of bias. The paper's editors say the ad muddled advertising and editorial. Plus other media tidbits ...

Greens v SMH over ad. The New South Wales Greens have accused The Sydney Morning Herald of censorship after the newspaper declined to publish a $10,000 ad they’d created for an eight-page Independent Commission Against Corruption lift-out on Good Friday. The Greens claim “newspaper editorial issues” boiled down to an attempt by Herald editor-in-chief Darren Goodsir to censor their party after he knocked back the ad for containing images taken from an SMH article, and then again for being too negative.

    There’s a line between advertising and editorials in our press?
    Personal-opinion laden commentary, by an op-ed presenter, isn’t “advertising”?

    I missed it – did Murdoch’s muppets at the Teletrash capture “Bunsen Honeydew” Sinodinos, as well as they have “Toady the Truth Fairy”?

    On the other hand the photoshopping wizards of the Teletrash graphics department and cartoonist John Tiedemann were to depict their boss, you know that ol’ fart Rupert they would surely draw a cockroach.

    Why is Kermit left handed in all these pictures? He played right handed in the movie.

    Fing about the original political Kermit, Nick “it ain’t easy being green” Greiner, is that he required so little photoshop tweaking.
