DAVID MARR HAS OUTED MEDIA WATCH
Its game is now blogging.
While its in-tray spills out instances of misbehaviour of both the serious (Philip "Appropriator" Adams and Ken "Xerox" Davidson, Henny "never let a deadline stand in the way of a good story" Herald) and the ludicrous (Alan Ramsay, Max-weird McCutcheon) kinds, the Gruesome Crew are on holiday.
The only matters of substance last night were two low-grade fiskings.
Who did they deal with?
Andrew Bolt and Miranda Devine.
Not for misbehaviour, but for having opinions not favoured by Media Watch.
Will they deal with Adams and Davidson and Ramsay and Burchill and Auntie's numerous serial commentators later?
Go back to sleep.
If Auntie's formal response to Alston's complaints is the polite way of saying "piss off", this is her two-finger salute.
Later: Here is Andrew Bolt's response to Media Watch's hatchet.
