The Daily Telegraph – 25 Sept, 2009 (repeat)
To use the word ‘journalist’ for this muck raking column, published daily in the Daily Telegraph, grossly exaggerates her talentless contribution.
She fabricates articles, never names so-called “sources” and breaches almost every code of journalistic ethics. Never does she check the facts with a subject – why let the truth spoil a dishonest article. She often plagiarises or paraphrases other journalist’s articles or phrases, particularly in the Sydney Morning Herald without attribution. Nothing she writes can be believed, and it is extraordinary that the ediitor of this newspaper has not taken even the most basic actions to ensure that this column does not repeat lies, day after day.
