THE DAILY MIRROR still hasn't

THE DAILY MIRROR still hasn't published anything by John Pilger since April 5, and star pre-war recruit Pilger doesn't appear on the paper's list of columnists. Has he been ... silenced?

UPDATE. Ross Fitzgibbon writes:

Do a Google news search for John Pilger and you find that he is still being published ... in the Palestine Chronicle and some Indymedia site. But better than that, he has won an award for "his work in helping the public to examine the real causes of the war in Iraq."

Well I guess he did do that, after all 50,000 people stopped buying the Mirror and started reading halfway decent papers thanks to John Pilger.
