Go Justine! We know these meeja types are endlessly plundering MN for their columns.

I wondered how long before you did.

hatwoman Fri 04-May-07 10:51:54

nice one Justine. I think the thing about it not happening round at there place anymore is so spot on!

WendyWeber Fri 04-May-07 10:52:18

The first comment made me laugh (as I sit on my backside )

JackieNo Fri 04-May-07 10:52:47

Oooh - some controversial stuff.

meto Fri 04-May-07 10:53:58

that man - bloody cheek. how rude.

Fantastic, Justine!

ChippyMinton Fri 04-May-07 10:54:57

Do journos not sit on their backsides then, whilst changing the world?

That Stevo blogger clearly hasn't read anything more than the top and the bottom of J's piece!

What are we meant to do when being online? Dancing a jig?

Stevekingofthenewts, I would just LOVE to see him here for a chat

And Justine you are right. We all know for a fact that researchers and journalist for most magazine programmes regularly plunder the threads of mn for inspiration.

Tamum Fri 04-May-07 10:57:25

Gosh what an erudite and well thought out argument there from Steve.

Well done though Justine, good piece.

munz Fri 04-May-07 10:57:52

Nice work Justine. I have ishoos with Alice Miles (can she even spell research?) and I thought your comments were spot on.

Marina Fri 04-May-07 11:11:10

Nice one Justine
Alice Miles

Well done Justine

Lovely comment - "Not much action either- a nice charity walk on behalf of a bereaved member of the club is nit quite using FoI to uncover cok-ups, let alone active protest. Let's face it, it's not exactly Greenham Common stuff." What a tosser

tortoiseSHELL Fri 04-May-07 11:41:01

Well done Justine!!! MNers sitting around doing nothing, I ask you!!!

WideWebWitch Fri 04-May-07 11:43:51

Fab Justine, don't let them get away with this claptrap.

littlelapin Fri 04-May-07 11:59:30

I've posted a comment - I suppose they moderate them as it hasn't appeared yet - I told AlisdairCameron that he should be ashamed of that comment about Mile for Maude and should consider making a donation on penance

That is fantastic!
Go Justine

JackieNo Fri 04-May-07 12:08:50

ll - your comment's there now.

zizou Fri 04-May-07 12:09:07

ace Justine

Was gonna post a response to Alisdair Cameron but I notice he's already been put in his place much better than I could have done it lol.
