We haven’t had The West featured for a while. Paul Murray, while generally bad hasn’t really plumbed his old depths of risibility. Pam Casselllas still seems to be scribbling away despite my contact telling me she’s leaving. Inside Cover plods along as ever. I’ve had half a mind to comment that the paper seems, well terminally dull, but didn’t really seem worth it, not when all the real action was going on here at TWOP, so who cared? The Armstrong dismissal removed a lot of the stupidity but has left the old rag fairly limp, a little like McMurphy after his lobotomy in Cuckoo’s Nest. I did however like this screen grab from a worker of The West’s internal search and info page Woogle. Click the pic for larger version.
And a nice typo from Crikey the other day. The Murdoch Empire now wees itself… I’m sure it’s pooing itself at the moment too.
