The inaugural Edward Said Memorial Lecture at Adelaide University will be delivered in October by – drumroll – the winner of numerous journalism awards, Robert Fisk.

Regarding Fisking, or to Fisk, it's worth noting:
While the term seems to imply that Fisk is a habitually bad reporter, Fisk has received several journalism awards, including the British International Journalist of the Year award seven times although, as famously demonstrated by Walter Duranty and a long list of others, journalism awards are not always proof of ethical standards or truth in reporting.
There may well be a great reporter in there somewhere but the guy's been nothing more than a lying lefty for as long as I can remember.

You'd pay money to turn up and hurl some pointed questions about the magnificent Republican Guard that folded like a cheap suit. How about that beating he took in Afghanistan? The man is a walking icon for stupidity.
