We have another new columnist, Martin McKenzie-Murray. We describe him as "a regular contributor", but that is not all he is. He has spent his entire post-uni career spinning for Labor ministers and Labor schemes.The Billabong's informant wonders, but only rhetorically, why editors responsible for processing McKenzie-Murray's columns have so far denied readers any hint of the writer's background and sympathies. Then comes a sarcastic suggestion that complaints should be lodged with the "excuses editor", a reference to Judy Prisk, who was appointed to handle complaints about inaccuracy, bias, and propaganda presented as news -- complaints, in other words, about all the sins that make Silly and Phage the travesties they are.
Fat chance of getting any satisfaction from Ms Prisk.
