Media briefs: beard fetish … Oz self-reflects … Fairfax deadlines …

The Australian media just can't get enough of beard stories. And other media tidbits of the day.

Beards are out … but stories about them aren’t. A university study has sparked a flurry of pieces about beards — and we wonder when they’ll stop. In a piece republished in today’s Australian, first published in the Sunday Times, we’re told that beards, alas, are on the way out.

    Regarding the back page of the NYT

    Pity The Oz doesn’t do the same…every day for every page

    It would certainly improve the quality of the Oz

    Trust the Bolter to jump on the “anti-muslim” bandwagon, following the bigoted actions of the Q Society in Bendigo. And true to form he isn’t letting the facts get in the way of his argument.
    The Bolter is entitled to his opinions, however misguided, but it was to be hoped that he would curb his habit of misrepresenting facts to support his viewpoint.

    re “Blot on the Political Landscape” – Blotistics prove he’s Right.

    And Day isn’t like most Murdoch employee/trolls – he’s a journalist isn’t he?

    @ Pedantic re: “it was to be hoped that he would curb his habit of misrepresenting facts to support his viewpoint”

    It’s his (and that of DevineRight, The Parrot et al) stock-in-trade. Except in the most extreme cases, even the most thoroughly-researched and cohesive cases presented fail to wake the APC from their slumbers. Self-regulation my hairy ar$e.

    Re Fairfax and lack of sports results. On Abc 774 a few days ago, listener queried Age guest (possibly editor?) on that very topic. Answer was along lines that as they now print in Ballarat they can’t do a second edition and so n8ght games won’t maks it into paper.

    FFS! Not much reason to buy paper if it can’t get footy results. And printing in Ballarat! Why bother to even print at all?
