Research too hard

Crikey's News Ltd obsessed media analyst (and legal eagle) Jeremy Sear claims the Murdoch press has ignored the execution in the U.S. of convicted murderer Troy Davis, with Fairfax and the ABC providing much better coverage.

Jeremy's whining is, typically, much ado about nothing, quick searches revealing the following Troy Davis execution results: ABC News, 129 hits;, 579 hits; the Sydney Morning Herald, 5,900 hits; and The Australian, 9,460 hits.

Jeremy is oddly research averse for a lawyer, this slackness perhaps accounting for his relegation to the Pure Poison media "analysis" backwater.

One suspects Jeremy is perhaps more "research selective" than "research averse" - only publishing the research which appeals to his biases.

It was quite clear looking at The Australian's website they published their first Troy Davis story at 12:32 pm. Yet Jeremy instead highlighted the website - which is far more populist editorially, and therefore less likely to follow the Davis story as closely.

Surely a man so obsessed with The Australian must have been aware of this?

I've been reading about this on most of the week.

Here's one from the Australian on Wednesday

Seeing that they've criticised Barnaby Joyce in the past for saying million when he meant billion - you'd have thought they would have enough shame to do a bit of research.

So if Jeremy has been "relegated", how should we describe your failed sojourn at Asian Correspondent, Beck?

A "sabbatical"?
A "self-demotion"?
Or just "a year with hardly any readers"?

If not wanting to appear stupid, you'd think that Anonymous at 1132 might have given some thought to Jeremy's even shorter career at Asian Correspondent before posting.

Anonymous at 5:11pm, this may come as a shock to the borderline cretinous like yourself, but "hardly any readers" is not the same as "no readers whatsoever". Please try harder.

Graeme, I'm not sure why every dig at Beck here has to be interpreted as glowing praise of Jeremy Sear. Frankly I think both he and Loewenstein are egotistical prats. That said, both are better known and attract more comments and attention than JF Shreck and Daniel-san.

anon at 5:11 pm 'Daniel San'? you racist little prat. But then thats a leftie thing isnt it? Just simmering under the surface, despite the hypocritical ideology. Nervously confident you're all

Hey which nutcase of the 'circle of leftie/green friends' are you? You seem to like slagging off Becks blog, but I'm sure *whichever* blog you host is many orders of magnitude inferior, with a masters degree in word mangling.

And completely insane.

I'm off to have a Max Brenner chocolate.

Cheers wanker, rest assured, you're simply garbage.

Are you seriously so fecking deluded as to think that calling someone a movie character is "racist"? And they reckon the Left is gung-ho with rampant PC.

The rest of your drivel is just this-blog-is-better-than-your-blog schoolyard piffle that isn't worth commenting on. Maybe shove that Max Brenner chocolate up your chocolate starfish and see if it jolts any sense into you.

Anon at 10:52, I see, racist little prat with an anal fixation apparently. He he that little retort also showed where you stand on the BDS, which is fairly unsurprising. 'Chocolate starfish'..Mmm you must spend a lot of time staring at your ass with that colourful comparison.

Which would explain the content of your angry little freudian rants here - and possibly on your own little internet rag.

Now go back to your intellectual wheelie bin, it must be collection day soon. Pity you couldn't finish high school.

Actually, 'chocolate starfish' is rather a common colloquialism for the anal sphincter. Although another that might take hold is 'foxy'. There are similarities between you and anuses after all ... overly tight, devoid of any appealing aspects and performing no other function than extruding shit.

It might be common in your special circles wanker, but in the real world it would be seen as bad taste. Speaking of which, it's a taste you probably know, as you seem to grovel about the internet with fellow ideologues. You are an embarrassing git with far too high an opinion of yourself - no doubt hedged on some lame pro green website spouting insane views of life.

Perhaps you can take that learned artificial plum out of your mouth and shove it up your orifice.

You really are a sad pompous narcissistic wanker

Considering I post here without a nick, you seem to know much about me. Little of it is true, of course, but I'm sure that lack of evidence hasn't ever stopped you from framing idiotic preconceptions.

Why don't you crawl back into your box and just shut the fox up.
