Corporate sponsorship rejected

The Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ) at the University of Technology Sydney, fearing that corporate involvement cannot but taint, objects to Exxon Mobil's sponsorship of the 2010 Walkley Media Conference.

Antony Loewenstein, an honorary research apointee at the ACIJ, is leading the charge:

 I’ve signed [the protest letter], as have many other leading reporters.

Loewenstein is not a leading reporter and never will be, ever: being an anti-Israel, atheist Jew is his only claim to fame.

He's not even a mediocre reporter.

Loewenstein has never produced original copy. Instead, he merely adds his own sneering line or two, to others' work.

It's interesting reading his mini-bio in contrast with the others, all with published research papers, Loewenstein with none.

Loewenstein's self-written mini-bio is as tragic as his other writing:

"He is a board member of Macquarie University's Centre for Middle East and North African Studies and appears regularly on radio, in public and at universities in Australia and overseas (including Harvard) discussing current affairs and politics."

1) Loewenstein appears regularly in public! Even despite all those "Death threats" from angry Jews. Cop that, Salman Rushdie...

2) Harvard is apparently a country. Who knew?
