As the Left of the media again traipsed to the dais to get their yearly awards for “journalism”, the once great event that all decent journalists aspired to, sank deeper into the mire of a union controlled farce.

Once again the ABC, Fairfax and The Guardian figured prominently and of course there was a little something for the ever-present token Muslim wanker, Waleed Aly.

Al-jazeera journo, Peter Greste, got one for being in jail and the top award was a story that embarrassed Abbott with the SBY phone taps, a proper treasonous scoop for the ABC and The Guardian that actually occurred during Rudd's term. But who cares as long as Abbott was embarrassed.

Of course a silly attempt at impartiality resulted in David Spears of SKY collecting his “prestigious” award. His was for three simple questions he asked of Liberal Senator Brandis concerning metadata. 

They weren’t hard questions but unfortunately for Brandis, and fortunately for Spears, Brandis was not across his portfolio and was painfully lost for words on one of the questions.

So anyone not demonstrably Left, but who is fortunate enough to be sitting opposite when a Liberal Party Member stuffs up, is apparently highly deserving of a Walkley?

They should have Walkley awards for retired prostate examiners, then every one of the silly bastards could get one?

Maybe scrap the Walkleys and start the “Pickerings”. No journos allowed to vote, WE will do that for them.

I saw the movie “The Killing Fields” 30 years ago, and remember at the end the journo who got an award for the story being asked (paraphrased) if he was in it for those killed in the fields or the award for himself.

Those decrying Bolt are just annoyed because he asks legitimate questions that his subjects often find hard to answer rationally and without resorting to ad hominem attack.

OFF TOPIC – One of the nominations for Fairfax’s Woman of the Year award was Freya Newman, the hacker who stole the details of Abbott’s daughters scholarship. I cannot wait for the Bankruptcy Receivers to walk into the offices of Fairfuck.

You only have to have a look at some of the people “teaching” journalism in our institutions, eg Wendy Bacon, no wonder! They all seem to have opinions when really they should be reporting FACTS!!

Larry, I agree…took one look at who got what ……and what they got it for & just wanted to cry…….seriously it was cry or be sick all over the newspaper…..
Journalistic excellence……….what a bloody joke……..journalistic puke is more to the point…..
The Walkleys were started by Ampol Petroleum founder Sir William Gaston Walkley in 1956 with just five categories, all recognising excellence in print journalism. Bill Walkley had envisaged awards that recognised emerging talent in the Australian media………..

I have no doubt that Bill Walkley would be turning in his grave with the shit they put his name to…….

At least they meant something when you won the Walkley Awards Larry. That 4 eyed git Spears should have refused the award for that piss weak effort he was involved with Brandis. It really is a laughing stock!

Walkley Awards – perfect example of what Victoria will become under the rule of the CFMEU. On second thoughts, Victoria will end up in total chaos. But you get what you voted for and Victorians voted for CFMEU Labor.

I find it hard to believe that there are so many in this country who wish to go back to the good old days of the communist Russia and the whole Eastern Bloc, where living standards plummeted to poverty level for the people and life was merely just “existence”. But then again, maybe the mussos will win and we can then go back to the 1st century and start all over again. God I hate what this mob of left wing bastards have done to our once great country.

The once prestigious Walkley Awards have sadly decayed to nothing more than amplification of the inanity of today’s trite, trivial media.

The Walkleys have gone the same way as the ABC. Their ABC, their Walkley awards. Moronic fools who believe they are right about everything. They bring war with islam closer to home every time they steal oxygen.

Of course, Ashley, you are obviously of pure and unblemished character, that you can level criticism of LP. Once again proving that the Left [ALP] always play the man and not the ball.

The Wanker awards! Has anyone ever heard of half these self important wankers? Their probably all members of the Labor party and card carrying Union fucks! I don’t trust David Spears, he’r be right at home in the ABC, like Lipsom and others! There is something seriously wrong with this country! The ABC, Fairfax, Unions, Greens, Get Up, Labor and Educators are all in the same team. Just look at the recent Vic elections, Firies, Police and Ambos in uniform handing out Labor how to vote cards, what a joke! No need to worry about the Freemasons, Illuminati or One… Read more »
