WALKLEY AWARDS A DEBASED ANACHRONISM


As the Left of the media again traipsed to the dais to get their yearly awards for “journalism”, the once great event that all decent journalists aspired to, sank deeper into the mire of a union controlled farce.

Once again the ABC, Fairfax and The Guardian figured prominently and of course there was a little something for the ever-present token Muslim wanker, Waleed Aly.

Al-jazeera journo, Peter Greste, got one for being in jail and the top award was a story that embarrassed Abbott with the SBY phone taps, a proper treasonous scoop for the ABC and The Guardian that actually occurred during Rudd's term. But who cares as long as Abbott was embarrassed.

Of course a silly attempt at impartiality resulted in David Spears of SKY collecting his “prestigious” award. His was for three simple questions he asked of Liberal Senator Brandis concerning metadata. 

They weren’t hard questions but unfortunately for Brandis, and fortunately for Spears, Brandis was not across his portfolio and was painfully lost for words on one of the questions.

So anyone not demonstrably Left, but who is fortunate enough to be sitting opposite when a Liberal Party Member stuffs up, is apparently highly deserving of a Walkley?

They should have Walkley awards for retired prostate examiners, then every one of the silly bastards could get one?

A squadron of blowflies all in the same room .

Maybe scrap the Walkleys and start the "Pickerings". No journos allowed to vote, WE will do that for them.

Sheep.lazy brain washed sheep. Baaaaa.

What article did the Equaliser get in the Age?

It so grips my shit that EVERY OUR ABC program cannot be shown without some mention of global warming.

Did Waleed Ali actually get an award or is someone pulling my leg?

Well Willone if he offend you that is good enough for me I shall be sticking with him. Oh are you angling for an article like The Equaliser got in the Age. You display many of the same attributes, you're in with a show I reckon.

I saw the movie "The Killing Fields" 30 years ago, and remember at the end the journo who got an award for the story being asked (paraphrased) if he was in it for those killed in the fields or the award for himself.

Willone will one day find himself a nice baby goat.

Those decrying Bolt are just annoyed because he asks legitimate questions that his subjects often find hard to answer rationally and without resorting to ad hominem attack.

Will be ringing tomorrow to cancel my membership. $56 a month better spent

me thinks that willone smokes to much green shit

These awards used to be something a decent and competent journalist aspired to now those same journo's would probably rather pat a Funnelweb.

Willone - did you cut off your avatar's high 'bald' forehead so we would not guess you are a pillow biter. . .

These were crap awards. Totally devalued.

This is what happens when a country losses its morals ,as we see with the left, unfairfax & the alpbc.

Doesn't go along with lefty greeny mohamMADist lovers.

Any mob who would hand an award to the Alley Weed is automatically a bunch of wankers. It is now the Wankley Award.

How do view comments in "oldest first" order?

Yes willone, Andrew Bolt is certainly good value - spot on mate.
