Excellence at 'Our ABC'

Gerard Henderson:
I regard it as quite unprofessional that...the taxpayer-funded editor of The Drum is not prepared to check “facts” presented by contributors to The Drum.

Actually, it's standard practice. Here's Antony Loewenstein this week:
Last night I appeared on ABCTV’s The Drum (video here) discussing both domestic and international affairs.
Enough said. Loewenstein carries a well documented history of uncorrected errors. Yet due to his odious ideology, he's considered plenty good enough for the ABC. Clearly Jonathan Green doesn't remember the number of corrections he had to run after Loewenstein's posts on Crikey.

This is how us Jews are seen; constantly desperate for war.
"Us Jews", Antony?

This from someone who has excluded himself from the Jewish community and whose sole reference to being Jewish is in an attempt to promote his career where anyone else would simply be written off as a Jew-hating fool.

Loewy makes a plea:
Leave the Middle East alone for a while, I stated, haven’t we caused enough mayhem over the last decades?
Yes. Let's see Antony blog about something else for a few weeks. Good luck with that.

In an earlier post, he writes:
This really a remarkable piece in The Economist that requires no explanation
As opposed to his writing.

The ABC can never be taken seriously as long as it continues to provide space to a dishonest, incompetent writer.

On the other hand, it must be nice to have at least one (ahem) 'journalist' guaranteed to sit by the phone and accept any invitation to appear and not say "Sorry, I'm on a deadline and working on something right now".

I re-sent your shallow anti-emetic attacks on me. You just think that because I'm dumb and illiterate my argument no good. My real friends on left don't care about that just so long as I agree wit them and stab my family in the back.

The antisemitic left has gone dead quiet on Israel. At Webdiary the subject has been banned from comment.

"It is the opinion of the Editors that it's time to end this subject and close the comments box, and, for the time being at least, to add the 'Israel/Zion/anti-semitism' trope to the list of things we won't publish any further comments on."

There is a reason for this. The Greens are split. BDS was a monumental strategic mistake. The party is split between the Stalinists who want the party to join the global campaign to destroy Israel and the tree huggers who suspect that advocating genocide might be political poison.
