Jeremy Sear's journalist friends

PP boy Jeremy Sear writes:
In contrast to #lolbolt's blather, I don't know any journalists who agreed with the "insult to the troops" line, let alone "the pack".
More truthfully: Jeremy doesn’t know any journalists at all.

Update Jeremy notes the Business Council of Australia's clarification of its position on the disability support pension – that the disability support pension is "unsustainable both fiscally and interms of its impact on the incentives for workforce participation" – but refuses to acknowledge that the BCA did not call for pension cuts.

In the same post Jeremy objects to a contributor to The Punch writing under a pseudonym:
Obviously I don’t have a problem with people writing pseudonymously per se (I did it myself for several years) and it can indeed be the only way for certain people to participate in public discourse without having their livelihoods put at risk.

Except it’s a bit different when it’s a website run by the biggest media company in the country...
Hmm, Jeremy didn't object to sharing Pure Poison writing duties with pseudonymous contributors Ant Rogenous and Tobias Ziegler but it's somehow improper when the mighty News Ltd publishes pseudonymous contributions. Like all Lefties, hypocrite Jeremy insists on playing by his own rules.

Update II Had Jeremy properly researched the BCA proposal he wouldn't need to update on the 17th a post published on the 16th by linking to a BCA news release dated the 14th. This is what happens when Crikey allows an amateur to play journalist.

Update III Jeremy objects to pseudonyms but engages in anonymous sock-puppeting.

Is it true that passionate cries of "OMG lolbolt!" and "OMG timmeh!" have been heard emanating from toilet blocks where Jeremy is tossing off?

Yeah well, Jeremy et al do spend every waking hour and them some thinking about Bolt and Blair.

That rant by Jeremy and friends, against "Angry Cripple", is really something. Seriously unhinged and hysterical sounding.

I don't know how to do that thing where you take a "picture" of something on your screen, but it might be worth it for someone to memorialise that post plus the comments so far, it looks like one of those ranty-rants he later decides (or is forced) to secretly tone down.

The cripple ain't got no right to privacy coz he ain't got no job.

So sez Jeremy the Lawyer who no doubt is about to reveal the real names and employment histories of all of the anonymous flunkies in his cheer-squad.
