Just a mini post. Since you are not likely to see it in our own newspaper, here are a couple of reports from The Age and The Oz about how crap The West Australian is according to Stokes. (Thanks Skink and Plastic Glasses). Kezza makes a convincing case, but since a budgie wouldn’t even crap on the paper if it lined its cage, that wasn’t too hard for him to do. A quote.
“Good newspapers have to invest in writers.
“There is no point in having self-indulgence and people writing what they think is good.”
To illustrate this point, try and get hold of yesterday’s Paul Murray piece where he meets someone who happens to be carrying a clipping of a Paul Murray column around with them. You’ll squirm with embarrassment. But more of that on Friday.
The OZ today in another story however described Brian Burke as a convicted fraudster and former West Australian PRIME MINISTER.

You know what would refresh the West’s Online presence? The Worst of Perth. You can invest in this writer Kerry.
