The Bali 9

This report on mediawatch about the Bali 9 and the arrangements made by Channel 9 for "exclusives" makes me sick.


How DARE anyone at channel 9 call themselves "journalists".

These people who work for Channel 9 would have done a similar course to what I studied, and yet they have no ethics, no morals, are just filthy, disgusting leeches.

We all know Ray Martin is a bastard from his attack on John Safran [video1] [video2], but you've got to wonder if it isn't a corporate policy to stomp all over common decency and respect for journalism...

  1. It's a great call regarding the so-called journalists at Channel 9. It's no wonder why such types [fearing the term people is inappropriate] are perceived in similar vein to used car salesmen and recently deceased paedophiles.

    The profession itself has gone from laughable to pitiful in direct proportion to the increasing value placed on ratings or numbers of copies sold and there isn't much that one can salvage from the entire 'art'.

    It's no wonder that gonzo journalists-cum-entertainers such as Monsignor Safran are as popular as they are when there's an ever present abundance of ammunition to aim at these poor, delusional, corporate twats. I mean, if the Channel 9 journo types aren't fuelling their own humiliation and, hopefully, demise then I don't know who is.

    Keep up the good work and thanks for the relevant links, FunkyJ.
