Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Nominate a real lefty for the Walkley journalism awards


The Walkley journalism awards are coming up and they have called for the following (among their other categories).

The Walkley Foundation also invites nominations for two of the awards:

Outstanding Contribution to Journalism (chosen by the Walkley Trustees): Recognises the achievements of a person or group for outstanding or enduring commitment to the highest standards of journalism. Each year, the Trustees recognise the achievements of a person or group that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the highest standards of journalism – truth, rigour, integrity, fairness – over a lifetime.

Leadership (chosen by the Walkley Advisory Board): Open to self and peer nominated entrants, this award recognises acts of courage and leadership by individuals or teams in coverage of news, innovation in journalism, and/or campaigning journalism. It could be innovation in the way media operates or the business and funding models that sustains journalism, or could recognise journalism that looks outside the square to research, investigate and/or present a story in a new and innovative way.

To nominate recipients for these two awards, send a 300 word statement to or to The Walkley Foundation, 245 Chalmers Street, Redfern, NSW 2016 explaining the reasons behind the nomination. If desired, include examples of work, citations from senior media and/or other personal references.

If you know someone in the left-wing media who has made an outstanding contribution to journalism or to leadership, including campaigning journalism and journalism that looks outside the square – and it shouldn’t be that hard given much of the MSM produces ruling class sycophantic drivel – then nominate them. All you have to do is send 300 words explaining why to Barbara Blackman (
