Crikey's homepage displays links to recent posts at in-house blogs:

Clicking the HELP GRATEFULLY ACCEPTED link leads to a blank page, however. That's because the Jeremy Sear post was up only briefly before being quietly consigned to oblivion, a shocking fate for the finely-crafted intellectual dishonesty-debunking of the PP boyz.

Jeremy's now gone effort cryptically reads:
If someone could fight News Ltd columnists’ battles for us - in lowdown, misleading and dishonest ways that we almost certainly couldn’t get away with ourselves - we’d be ever so grateful.
It seems Jeremy thinks -- but it is hard to know for certain -- I'm using "lowdown, misleading and dishonest" strategies in supposedly fighting Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt's battles for them. Well, here's a newsflash for Jeremy, there have been no battles: the overwhelmingly lightweight nitpicking leftist nonsense cranked out by the PP boyz is no threat to any mainstream journalist and is a reflection of the sad state of the left in general and Crikey in particular.

Picking apart the PP boyz' drivel is even easier than dissecting Antony Loewenstein. Really, you guys embarrass the whole of the Australian left and should stick to what you're good at; like whining about the RACV and cell phones, and imagining Pepsi bottle penises. Crikey made a mistake in hiring you lot and it's likely its reputation, such as it is, will never recover.

Finally, if Pure Poison's readers had an ounce of sense between them they'd be insulted that posts are removed or modified without explanation. It's the height of dishonesty.

I couldn't have put it better, JF - it's truly pathetic.

Pedro at PP comments is the winner and Carlos is the loser. Again!

I confess, I am not Carlos's mum, but I thought that would be apparent. ;)

Should professional bloggers not be held to higher standards than hobby-bloggers?Compared to the two dropkicks I cited above, all human beings should be held to 'higher standards'. But Becky likes them...

For my good self, Carlos, the poo-flinging factor is precisely why I prefer to stand well away from both the howler-monkey enclosure at the zoo and your beloved PeePee Boyz blog. They would seem to be much of a muchness, scatalogically speaking.

The PP moderation policy has banned several people from comment Carlos. They are shit frightened of anyone not agreeing with them making their point at PP.

I read somewhere of Jeremy boasting that Crikey pays for his work. The word WHY? echoed in my head for at least an hour.

'Intellectual dishonesty' aside ...


"Intellectual honesty aside..." That actually would make a good tagline for the PP Blog.

Right up there with "Schadenfreude -- You're soaking in it!"You can have either one of those free of charge, Jonathan & Eric. I'm nice like that.

Er Carlos. It was not the "passive-agressive" bit but rather the "girly-men" that made people think you may be a little bit "homophobic".

As a discerning gay conservative male myself, I don't find either of them "girly" in the slightest.Have a look at ABC's Insiders, then. Bolt is about as masculine as a tea cosy.

Not a lot of intelligence in that intellectual honesty over at Crikey. They must all have night jobs that pay the bills. That little rag they're trying to flog won't keep them in cheap plonk let alone bread and cheese. However, unlike their ruling on global warming the science on this is not settled and I await the day they prove me incorrect.

Not a lot of honesty either.
