Time to chose Margo, and Jackman the hackman.

Boy, there sure is a lot of furious anger towards Margo Kingston in right-wing blogger land. Tim Blair recently posted an item about Margo misspelling a word and got 60 angry nutters calling for her public execution. (Bit of an exaggeration here).

But Margo has to decide, is she a journalist or a campaigner.
You can't be both Margo, and you can't swap between the two positions. If the SMH wants to retain their credibility they will show Margo they door. I'd just like to add that Margo has many talents and will be welcomed by other organisations.

Speaking of talent, News Limited's Christine Jackman doesn't have any judging from this story in the Australian.

Conventional defamation doesn't apply on the internet eh Christine? Tell that to one Mr Hardwick who got done for ten years ago in Rindros v Hardwick. What about Gutnick? Stop making stuff up Christine.

Jackman also says it is virtually impossible to find Latham blogs.
Christine, If you put "mark latham" and "blog" into google you will find this page. Now look at third on the list. Click it and you get the They're all arslickers blog. Gee, that took me about 30 seconds.

Here are two more. Time for a new profession Christine if you can't manage basic research.

Both Margo and Jackman get votes for the "Hack of 2004" trophy.

Margo writes opinion and it is labelled as such. NEWS CORP writes opinion and labels is as news.

What's more, Margo's webdiary is a new form of "broadcast" journalism. She has a s(pr)ay, and let's others have theirs. And they do.

Yeah but margot speaks at anti-John howard rallies as well. Not much difference between that and Alan Jones being the guest of honour at Liberal fundraisers.
