Political commentators are either soft-left, or they're right-wing thugs.

In fact all real journalists are on the left, because they criticise authority.

Those are the views of David Marr, presenter of the award-winning pulpit Media Watch.

Mind you, the award came from Auntie's agenda-setting stroke-pals at UTS's Centre for Independent Journalism.

I know it's old-fashioned, but I find public displays of incest distasteful.
