SMALL WORLD

I forgot to mention this earlier, but Sunrise presenter (and Media Watch target) Melissa Doyle is blogger Tim Dunlopís sister-in-law. Which means Timís kid can now call her Aunty Fuckwit.

But it's okay, because Media Watch takes - as one of Tim Dunlop's readers says - "cheap (but very amusing) shots at various news papers and news shows, just to lighten things up before they got onto serious things like plagiarism or outright lying."

I wonder if TD will be blogging on Aunty Fuckwit.

whatever there is between the two tims should stop right now, cause the constant sniping and one-upmanship is boring and infantile.

ooo ooo he has a big paypal button; ooo ooo he has button envy; ooo ooo "instructive of a certain mindset"; ooo ooo "far-fetched analogy"; ooo ooo "aunty fuckwit" etc. just fucking stop, it's tiresome.

Adam -- just stop reading.

Yeah, Tim stopped reading ages ago and look - he now has his very own column in the Bulletin!

It's what, 800-odd words at 70c a word? $560ish is pretty good money for recycling old blog entries.

And you still haven't told how many corrections and apologies to your column they've run...

Posted by: Bon Scott at July 22, 2003 at 05:55 PM

They've run one correction, Bon. I've run a couple as well.

70 cents a word? What is this, 1981?

Ok Tim that was funnnny! But Dunlop is not really worth your effort. Bunch of crap - as in 'never piss into the wind'.

Melissa Doyle a Fuckwit??????? Thats just not fair. She is so cutsey wutsy. Woulden't you just love to squeeze those cheeks? (I said squeeze her cheeks, not squeeze between them) Now Jill Singer when she was on Today Tonight was a fuckwit. Headache and all.

I reckon Tim Blair's a fuckwit.

Posted by: craig at July 22, 2003 at 06:54 PM

A nice little dig at Dunlop but the point of it is to blast Media Watch.

>I reckon Tim Blair's a fuckwit.

I reckon he can use a dictionary.

Seconded about squeezing Melissa Doyle's cheeks. One shouldn't patronise women in TV news/ current affairs shows, but then MD does joke about herself being a blonde. Cute but smart. A lethal combo.

Posted by: Uncle Milk at July 23, 2003 at 01:38 PM

Sorry, should have said "cute AND smart". Obviously the two aren't antithetical. A Patricia Heaton for the antipodean screen.

With Blair Wit(ch), it is hard to tell when insane paranoia supplants scheming rationality ...

Posted by: Widower at July 23, 2003 at 07:13 PM

I would like to fuckwit Melissa but my wife would kill me.
