    Well it could really only go up couldn’t it?

    Judith lies awake each night dreading the powerful influence of The Standard. Always close to her thoughts. Will The Standard finally topple her? Will they laugh at her? Toss and turn and peep at the Standard when no one is watching her.
    Sad, sad, sad.

    I see her best mate lost his coveted Canon “best blog” media award last night.

    His fall from grace is one of the only positives for the socially responsible left this year.

      Whose turn was it to win this year? David Farrar? I mean, there’s not a lot of right-wing blog sites to choose from so I suppose they have a rota system. Perhaps they occasionally throw in some neutral “beige” blog site to make it look like they’re apolitical. Has our Pete ever won it yet?

      edit: yeah I know he’s not neutral, but he likes to pretend he is and that’s good enough for rwnjs.

        Oops, I see Jarrod Gilbert won this year. I guess they had to make up for the gobsmacking hash (Deborah Hill Cone adjudicated did she not?) they made of it last year – election year!

          Ahhhhh good on Jarrod.

          Hill Cone knows Odgers doesn’t do bad things cos she bought CH’s child a big stuffed toy… that’s the level of analysis of that particular judge

          I think Hoskings got an award for journalism as well??

          • Anne

            Hill Cone thinks Odgers is such a “lovely and generous” person. Generous alright – with her vitriol. I knew Odgers for a bit in the 1990s and she was a rude, arrogant little *^$% who didn’t care who she rode roughshod over if there was something to gain. She and a mate (won’t name him but it wasn’t Slater) used to shadow certain individuals to see where they went and what they got up to. I guess you never know when some information might come in handy…

        I’ve asked previously why The Standard doesn’t enter these things. They said simply it’s not their thing and there are more important things to do which I entirely agree with.

      The Canon Media Awards lost all credibility a year ago.

      Fuckwits or fools, either way they can never be taken seriously again.

      • Weepus beard 3.2.1

        While that is true, it’s no surprise to me that Slater is nowhere to be seen this year.

        May he rot in hell for what he’s done to this country.

        “The Canon Media Awards lost all credibility a year ago.”

        Although Canon themselves did distance themselves from Slater’s award and it’s possible that they made their sponsorship conditional on changes being made in the judging this year. OTOH, the Herald got a lot of the awards this time.

    The scary thing is that when someone who often tells lies says something, you’re not sure whether they’re in lying mode or having a truthful moment.

    Maybe Judith was lying about the Standard. Whad’ya reckon?

    The MSM are mostly a bunch of shameful right wing sell outs so why worry about The Standard? Surely she’s not that insecure is she?

    The milk maid doth protest too much, me thinks!

    • felix 6.1

      I agree! In that single too-dismissive moment, she revealed herself.

      I think that, just like any of the righties who constantly complain about having to read the whole site daily and comment on everything, she just can’t tear herself away.

    • the pigman 7.1

      I like the way she doesn’t even respond to 2/3 of the questions, preferring a kind of gurning shriek instead. Reminds me of Ricky Gervais, except without the humanity.

    Maui,what a moment, thanks to Ed Byrne, when Collins didn’t have a smart arse, “chirpy”response. Ed managed to capture all that is wrong about Collins in short sentence, if only he was a politician!Of course, Ed could say it as he does not have to “fear” Collins’s “pay back double” style of (ab)using power.

    Goff had a swipe at her hypocrisy today in the SST
