IT AIN'T NO SIN TO SPIN on Auntie's Media Watch.

A long marriage to Auntie makes a man insensitive to political whoring, but young readers MG and LW can still be shocked by the sight of David Marr's knickers:

Media Watch fans who've enjoyed our recent scrutiny of Professor David Flint and his friends in the radio industry, can now own this fabulous new fridge magnet, inspired by the stirring words Veterans Affairs Minister Danna Vale meant to send to Alan Jones.

Here it is: a shield with cash rampant, microphone sinister and the motto we've all taken to heart: Stay Brave and True.

In Auntie's commune they follow faithfully one of Alan Jones's commandments: pick and stick.

Pick only your political friends for commentary, and stick it up the tax-payers.
