In Case You Missed It

Former PM Paul Keating slams Janet Albrechtsen:
Will someone at The Australian take this loony tune off its pages? Her journalism is not national debate. It is not reasoned argument. It is not even polite difference of opinion. It is vilification of the most addled variety. The Australian celebrates itself as a right-wing newspaper priding itself on some intellectualism. Even in its terms, it should draw the line somewhere.

Albrechtsen is a no-talent proselytiser for causes overtaken by history and events.

If not for the rest of us, perhaps for the paper’s own sake, will someone summon the courage to give her the pink slip?
