By George, a disgrace 12/8/2012
George Megalogenis is an embarrassment to News Ltd journalists.
His employer, The Australian, has three times in the past 10 days front paged the biggest political scandal in decades.
This yarn has everything that sells papers: sex, fraud, VIP involvement and potential damage for Australia’s leading ambulance chasers.
And it’s not just The Australian giving Wilsongate the treatment that once would be expected from every media outlet in the nation. The Australian Financial Review has also examined the matter forensically. Andrew Bolt has gnawed away in the Herald Sun and Sydney talkback jocks have been on the case.
Yet Megalogenis goes on Insiders and doesn’t devote a syllable to an issue his far more courageous and balanced colleagues are dragging under the national spotlight.
You don’t expect the other lefties on Insiders to focus intently on anything that might hurt their beloved Labor, but surely Megalogenis has a duty on that program to ensure at least a mention of the biggest political story his esteemed employer has run with in the past week.
I’ve had advice that someone may be over-reaching on this, so we’re playing safe by deleting certain links.
