Tim Dunlop has a post at The Age's Media Blog on MSM fact checking in which he praises John Quiggin and Tim Lambert while questioning my journalistic credibility:
A good example is this post by John Quiggin and this one by Tim Lambert in which they discuss what Miranda Devine and others have said about the use of DDT as an anti-malarial. Other bloggers are also involved in the discussion, such as Rafe Champion from the free-market blog, Catallaxy, and JF Beck, the self-identified Right-wing Death Beast (maybe we can do a separate post on the correlation between blog-names and journalistic credibility!).
The royal "we" and the gratuitous exclamation mark must be to add gravity.

Anyway, blogging is simply a hobby for me; I don't claim to be a journalist because I'm certainly not. That said, unlike Dunlop, I have never intentionally misled my readers - other than when trying to be funny - and never will.

Dunlop's been a retread for a while now. He's in need of a fucking good vulcanising.

Oh dear. Tim the Dim has thrown his toys out of the cot and starts pointing fingers about credibility. Fuckwit.
