David Fisher is a child


Two people are having a genuine debate over improving the quality of journalism.

David Fisher, “a decent journalist, trained and skilled“, who isn’t even part of this conversation, jumps in to do what?  

I would have thought that the recent “correctional chat” he had not to pick fights with me would also extend to other people?

I guess not.

APN, those budget cuts… you  have dead wood you know.

    99% of NZ journalists are immature jumped up school kids full of their own self importance. Just look at the NZ Herald rugby writers Wynn Grey & Gregor Paul interviewing each other & passing their opinions as facts, it is a comedy routine.

      And don’t get me started on Chris Rattue, the Village Idiot of world sports opinion*.

      * I can’t use the term “journalism” for fear of being prosecuted under the Trades Description Act.

    Amazing he can find time to buy into someone elses punch-up, and felate the fat kraut as well, I can see why he gets a star role at the fish wrapper, such talent is not often seen out in the streets.

    • Dave

      And frankly, we do not want people of Mr Fishers talents on the streets. I hope the Fish Wrapper continues their employment of Fisher and his elk so our streets can be safer!

    WO – if you dish it out you must be prepared to cop it back.

    An atrocious spelling mistake in your headline, the final word should clearly be spelt F-U-C-K-W-I-T
    If only you were “a decent journalist, trained and skilled”….

      Get with the program Jeff. The Fish wrapper, claim their Journo’s particularly the FishMonger are “Trained and Skilled” I don’t think Cam has ever claimed to be a Trained and Skilled Journalist, just a Blogger, and a damn fine Blogger at that.

      Has he ever expected you to pay a couple of bucks for his blog every day when you visit, no, didn’t think so.

      On the other hand, if you spot any errors in the Fish Wrapper (or errors near the error rate) in “The Truth”, I suggest you take that matter up with the Journo who wrote the article, or you might like to take it up with their highly regarded Editor, a Mr Cameron Slater. He’s a Top bloke actually JeffDaRat.

        They say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but perhaps not low enough….

        • Dave

          Seems if you don’t like the heat stay out of the kitchen Jeff. Your happy enough to throw shit at others !!

          • JeffDaRef

            Have a cup of tea and a cigarette big boy – there was no shit thrown, it was dripping with sarcasm, validated by WO responding in the same vein.
            Can we spell s-a-r-c-a-s-m?
            Lighten up, we’re on the same team…

    • i was thinking C-U-N-T

      • Lion_ess

        Oh, thanks for the clarification.

  • toby_toby

    I hope he realises one day that he’s nowhere near as smart as he thinks he is.

    “Two people are having a genuine debate over improving the quality of journalism”.

    For real??? Those three epitomise the worse aspects of modern “it’s-all-about-me” journalism. Their biases show in their reporting, they push their personal position on issues (rather than merely report the facts) and to top it off, they fancy themselves as self-appointed judge, jury and executioners, which “justifies” their modulus operandi.

    Sorry Fairfax, I switch off reading Andrea Prance’s stories once her self-bias kicks in (usually in her opening paragraph).

    Gower (and former bum chum Garner) is one reason why I watch TVNZ news over TV3.

    As for Fisher – it’s fascinating to read other non-political blogs (non-partisan against the media) where contributors point out his lazy, inaccurate reporting.

    Not sure which one of them is the biggest cunt – perhaps they could slog it out amongst themselves to find out?
