A while ago we put out a call for Worst of Perth fans to nominate the Worst journalist at The West Australian Newspaper. Here are the nominations tallied up, and the the verdict, it appears is all of them! I did have one person saying they didn’t think Mark Naglazas should be in there, but they wouldn’t commit to that in writing. Here’s the list.Lazy Aussie – Paul Murray Rothwells – Mark Naglazas for a review from years back. (If this wasn’t WOP, I’d say get over it Rothy!) Trader Horn – The whole paper, particularly the weekend version. P Crackpot- Mark Duffield, for nominating Ben Cousins as spiritual leader. Several seconds on this one.
Cimbali – Stephen Scourfield , for general bad ‘tude, and bad poetry.
AV – Bethany Hiatt for OBE hysteria. My Ning –Mark Drummond for gushing over Billionaire Andrew Twiggy forrest
Had another submission today from The Daily Beast who nominated the blogging bios. Daily Beast saysHave you checked out the paper’s blogger bios on the site ? Its probably worth a nomination of its own just for the photos. What were they thinking and what are the pics meant to tell us about the people?: Bloody excruciating. No wonder they hide the bloggers on the West’s homepage so no-one can find them.” OH MY GOD don’t click on that link if you want to hold down your lunch -ed.
I love Paul Murray’s bio which says, “…after six years on talkback radio, he’s (Paul) been on the receiving end of just about every epithet invented. However, as an optimist, he’s looking forward to something completely original.”
So are we Paul, so are we. A little birdy just happened to have given me an even worse shot of Teh Paul for your enjoyment.
