Peter Reith is the new columnist for God’s sake? I thought at Christmas that Paul Sheehan was leaving and I rejoiced, but now – another right wing apologist. Is the SMH going to put him on the same page as Sheehan and show the papers real colours and when will Fairfax address the matter of balance – right and left wing because I can’t really see much of any balance in the SMH these days.
The SMH is looking more and more like the other paper with its crazies.
When Alan Ramsay left, off went any attempt at balance; Mike Carlton plays it for laughs so who is the middle/left-wing writer for people who do not subscribe to a conservative view.
Oh dear, Fairfax, what is happening?
