...almost anyone can call themselves a journalist these days, as evidenced by the nonsense published by people claiming to be journalists on websites such as ... Stephen Mayne's Crikey.
Crikey on Piers Akerman:
...a NSW judge had this to say about Piers Akerman, in the course of awarding a $200,000 defamation payout .... "The inaccuracies of fact by the defendant... are gross... so extreme a misstatement of fact as to vitiate any defence of comment for any imputation based on it."
Yep, anyone can call themselves a journalist these days. Even Piers Akerman.
We on the left are well aware that the likes of Piers rely on bile as a substitute for competence.
