Why has it taken until now for this Brisbane story to be reported in Brisbane?
The 'Sydney Morning Herald' got the "scoop", reporting the story on 29th September (shouldn't that be embarrassing for News Ltd?). Silencing dissent is stock-in-trade for News Ltd., so who is surprised and who cares?
...''Tuesday is my least favourite day here. It goes very slowly. It's also the day I sub a lot of the columns, and they suck.'' But it was his attack on columnist Julie Novak, a research fellow from Melbourne's Institute of Public Affairs, as a ''rightard'' who ''shows no sign of thinking in her incoherent screeching'' that sealed his fate....Dr Zen is now looking for a new job. ''I was just astonished that [Novak] had run to my bosses instead of just emailing me and asking me to take it down.''You were "astonished" by that? How long did you work for these people? How could you NOT know the way they operate and the way they handle criticism?
It's all very funny and amusing, isn't it? Why can't anyone tell us who this person, "Dr Zen", is?
What a mockery of journalism!
Bet you $100, "Dr Zen" bobs up again in some well paid role in Brisbane.
These people are truly "unflushable" aren't they?
Action: Have a good laugh
